Where can I find an official specification outlining the web application directory structure? I've found many "how-to" guides to setting up the directory structure, but I'd like something official. A section number for a particular spec would be helpful.

Thanks,
Paul

You could refer to Java Servlet Specification (version 2.4)

Here is online explanation of WAR file and its contents

Thank you for your reply.

The Servlet Spec does have a brief section (9.4) on the Web app directory structure, buit it does not cover everything (TLDs for instance). I'm looking for an <b>official (i.e. specification)</b> document that spells out everything that can go into the web application directory and where it goes. I believe that HF Servlets and JSPs does a good job of explaining this, but I'd still like an official spec.

thanks,
Paul
