Tomcat: getting error "PopulateSpreadsheet cannot be resolved to a type"

I have a jsp page that uses a class library located in the classes/pikefin folder. In the JPS page it is being imported with this line:
<%@ page import="pikefin.*" %>

BTW, this was all working fine until I changed some code in the class library and recompiled.

Here is the full error message from the tomcat log:
 
SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.jsp.jsp.JSPEssbase2.essbasedatasource_jsp
        at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:217)

        at org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet.serviceJspFile(JspServlet.java:313)

Open in new window


I checked the permissions on the .class files in :
/var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/JSPEssbase2/WEB-INF/classes/pikefin

and they are all set to 777.

I've restarted tomcat several times.

Sorry, that error message I gave before is further down the log file.

This is the part that appears before that:
Feb 23, 2011 9:30:48 AM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve invoke
SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP:

An error occurred at line: 15 in the jsp file: /jsp/JSPEssbase2/essbasedatasource.jsp
PopulateSpreadsheet cannot be resolved to a type
12: <body>
13: <%
14: out.println(" Hello Oracle World5");
15: PopulateSpreadsheet tmp = new PopulateSpreadsheet();
16:
17: ArrayList<String[]> tmpArrayList = tmp.getArrayList();
18:

Open in new window


And a similar message appears in the browser:
An error occurred at line: 15 in the jsp file: /jsp/JSPEssbase2/essbasedatasource.jsp
PopulateSpreadsheet cannot be resolved to a type
12: <body>
13: <% 
14: out.println(" Hello Oracle World5");
15: PopulateSpreadsheet tmp = new PopulateSpreadsheet();
16: 
17: ArrayList<String[]> tmpArrayList = tmp.getArrayList();
18:

Yeah... I know I had it working and then it stopped all of sudden. But now I realized what the problem was, the browser was using a cached older url that was only slightly different and I didn't noticed the difference until now.
