Embbedded web apps?

Hello all

Not sure if this is the correct forum to ask this. Suppose I have a web app called ABC deploy to localhost/ABC.

Now I have another web app called XYZ but want to deploy inside existing web app ABC such that it can be accessed as localhost/ABC/XYZ instead of localhost/XYZ.

Would this XYZ web app an "embedded web app"? How does the project structure look like? Cos when I create web apps in Eclipse or Netbeans, there is any options to embed or include this web project to another web project. Yet I can do so if the parent project (eg ABC in this case) is an enterprise project.

Thanks in advance.

The servlet specification does not support this. You need to integrate the XYZ web app into the ABC web app.
