It is the heart of any J2EE web application. It is extremely important.
The Web Application Deployment Descriptor for your application. This is an XML file describing the servlets and other components that make up your application, along with any initialization parameters and container-managed security constraints that you want the server to enforce for you
Taken from http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/appdev/deployment.html
