Activiti 5.7. Instantiating my own classes

Hi, Activiti Team!

Is there difference in instantiating custom classes in version 5.6 and 5.7?
In version 5.6 I generated the .jar file by Eclipse, put it into directory <activiti home>\apps\apache-tomcat-6.0.32\webapps\activiti-rest\WEB-INF\lib\, and all worked fine.
Then I moved to new version of Activiti - 5.7, and done all the same steps, but my classes are not available. Exception is:
com.vaadin.event.ListenerMethod$MethodException
