Tomcat webapp

I have a web application which is deployed in Tomcat. But it�s not deployed as the normal way. That is, normally tomcat uses a default package structure. But this is different.

In this app, JSP pages are compiled using JSPC from apache, and all the compiled files are put into a jar file. But I can invoke the JSP pages by giving corresponding URL�s.

In WEBAPP directory, there is a folder for classes but the classes for the app are in a jar file that is not in WEBAPP directory.

In WEBAPP/appContext/WEB-INF directory only web.xml and �classes� folder are available but in classes folder, there is no classes.(Classes are in jar file outside the context path).

But Tomcat runs fine and application runs fine. I am not getting it�s configuration.

Anybody have a good web resource that specify the tomcat webapp configuration in NON-CONVENTIONAL way?. Or any suggestions to tame the application?.

I agree. Here's the link:
