Hi friends,
Can I keep my jsp and servlet classes inside the META-INF in a war file. If so, how can a application access these files?

With Regards to all

The classes need to be inside WEB-INF/classes. The JSPs could theoretically be in META-INF, I think, but why would you do that? That's not what META-INF is there for.
I agree. Here's the link:
