When I create a web project in WSAD. It creates 3 xml files under WEB-INF directory: web.xml, ibm-web-bnd.xml and ibm-web-ext.xml. Web.xml is for servlet mapping (and many more), but what is the use of other two?

The two other XML files are used by the local Websphere Server.

The bnd contains any binding references to things such as ebj or jndi elements.

The ext file contains the web app extension settings such as if to allow directory browsing.

They are not included in the deployable ear file but should be set on your live Webshere server configuration.

I agree. Here's the link:
