Lucee 5 missing WEB-INF/classes dir

Description

On ColdFusion, Railo and Lucee 4.5, one had a WEB-INF/classes dir, into which one could put individual Java class files which the CFML engine would then pick up for `createObject("java")` calls.

This appears to be missing on Lucee 5.

According to some Tomcat docs I read, I should simply be able to create the dir and use it as per usual (ie: Lucee should know to look there if the dir exists), but this does not work either.

I also looked to see if it was a matter of adjusting Lucee's classpath to also include that dir now that I had created it, but could not see where to do that via the admin UI. I also checked startup.bat (I'm just using the express install), but could see no suitable classpath option there. I will admit to being a bit of a dunderhead when it comes to this level of config, and in lieu of there not being any docs for it, I get lost / frustrated quickly.

Things might work differently in Lucee 5, but if so: you need to document it accordingly (could not find said docs, if they exist, I only googled).
