If you want to stop the access to a jsp resource directly then Yes putting in web-inf is the easiest solution.

Of you want to stop access to a jsp based on some input/authentication criteria then using a filter is a preferred solution.

If your doubt is still not answered just elaborate the problem definition.

Yes, Aditya is right. Use filter where you can check particular information & based on the result you forward request to your JSP or forward somewhere else according to your need.

WEB-INF, not web-inf.
