Hi All,

Can someone point me to a webpage that describes all the element that one can put in a web.xml file? I tried WC3 at first glance but didnt get anything.

Thank you

Well, by definition, this page does, for the simple reason that it's what's used to validate web.xml:

However, there are definitely more readable documents available. Also, of course, that particular XSD defines version 2.5. Other versions have their own XSDs.
