for security reasons webMathematica remove all objects in the
Global` context. In your MathLink program *and* in your package
you must give all symbols the proper context (not Global`)
The usual is that you get patterns/symbols with Removed[someSymbol]
and this match not more to the functions you have defined in your package.
I had the same problem when I try MathGL3d with webMathematica
for the first time.
