A Web-app in my Organisation creates some log files, which are inside its WEB-INF directory. Can I make another app within the same container to access contents within another app's WEB-INF ?

The reason I ask this is because I am not allowed to add any filters to the original app but can use the log files for further analysis. While this is currently being done manually , I would like to automate it.

You can access any file on the server for which the user has write permissions. Many people don't store their logs under the app directory at all and multiple apps can access those.
