I beg your pardon if this is not the right place to post this thread.
I searched forums for a while and found this forum right one to post my doubt.

I am in the process of developing one small web application.

My doubt is:

I am using the standard directory structure as suggested by J2EE specification.
that is:

my web-application folder (forum) is in webapps folder. i.e (webapps/forum)
I have jsp folder in forum directory for my jsps. i.e (webapps/forum/jsp)

My jsp is using java bean

<jsp:useBean id="db" class="Connection" scope="session"/>

My doubt is where to place the class file i.e Connection.class in this directory structure.

I have placed it in webapps/forum/web-inf/classes folder.
Is it correct?

It first must be placed in a package other than the default. Then the package hierarchy is rooted at WEB-INF/classes.
