The servlet specifications lay out the requirements for the information that a deployment descriptor must contain - in XML format. The purpose is to completely describe a "web application" in a single document.
The convention is that this file is named web.xml and it is place in the WEB-INF directory of a web application.
There is a PDF formatted servlet spec. document you can download from Sun that is loaded with details.
