does WEB-INF store only servlet files and nothing else
Information from the Java Servlet Specification 2.4:
The contents of the WEB-INF directory are:
• The /WEB-INF/web.xml deployment descriptor.
• The /WEB-INF/classes/ directory for servlet and utility classes. The classes
in this directory must be available to the application class loader.
• The /WEB-INF/lib/*.jar area for Java ARchive files. These files contain servlets,
beans, and other utility classes useful to the Web application. The Web application
class loader must be able to load classes from any of these archive
