Images, css and js files

Hello everyone,
I am trying to put all the css, image files and javascript files as a part of my web-application so that I can use that path for calling those css, image or js files from the html. I want to do something similar to how you reference jquery, you put src="<jquery url>" and the html document would fetch the file from that url. So i want something like that in my web application so that i can create sources like www.mysite.com/cssfiles/slider.css and then put that url reference in my webpages so that they can access it.
Is there a way I can put these files in my web application file structure and can access them through url.
Please give me some ideas.

Thanks

Sure. Just put them anywhere in the web app other than under WEB-INF.

Thanks for the reply
So then what would be the url for accessing it through internet // What would be the base folder of it //

The same base as your web app.
