Eclipse + Glassfish Dynamic Web Project

I am using the latest version of Eclipse with Glassfish installed (no Tomcat).
I am trying to create a dynamic web project. I go new->other->web->Dynamic web project.
When I finish with the wizard I get a new project in the project explorer.
My problem is that it is a very complicated syntax!
There is a Deployment Descriptor, a Referenced Types, a Java Resources:src folder , a build folder and a WebContent folder with META-INF, WEB-INF subfolders.
I can't find what each folder is for!
For example: Where should I put the servlets and where the JSP's, web.xml, etc.?

Please advise,

Please be sure to ask IDE questions in the IDEs forum. I have moved this post there for you.
