Hi everybody, I am chaitanya, I have a doubt, Using the deployment descriptor, I can access the classes in the classes folder under WEB-INF.
Consider a scenario, I have a folder named jsps under WEB-INF folder, not can I access the jsps. If I can do so, please tell me how to do that, should I configure anything in the deployment descriptor.
The whole purpose of putting JSPs under WEB-INF is to disallow directly addressing them. This is a good practice as the JSPs should only be available via their servlet controllers -- you can forward to JSPs under WEB-INF.
If that's not what you want, don't put them there.
