I am looking for a software that can check the validity of web.xml, so I know it is well-formed. Can anyone suggest me one for JSp and servlet deployment?

If the web.xml is not well-formed, you will get errors from Tomcat. Why the need for another tool?

If you want to be fancy, you can use an xml editor. There are many to choose from.

I've been using eclipse IDE and it gives me plenty of errors when something is malformed. so, use an IDE... eclipse is good. netbeans ... etc.

A few years ago I bought XMLspy - expensive but great functionality for all sorts of XML related tasks. Altova now has a free "home edition" downloable.
I agree. Here's the link:
