JSP and Java files are regulaar text files, so yes, you can use notepad. An IDE like Eclipse is not required.

You will need a web.xml file for each web app. At a minimum it will list the servlet you're using and the URL it's mapped to (I'm assuming that you're talking about a servlet where you say "Java file"). The web.xml file goes into the WEB-INF directory (capitalization is important).

Whether or not you use Eclipse makes no difference in that regard. Since you're a beginner, I'd advise not to use an IDE. They have their own learning curve, and at the beginning tend to complicate things instead of making them easier.

Dear Mr. Dittmer,

Thank you for the reply, i just want to ask some more, do i have to create the WEB-INF folder my self or i have to do some setting in the eclipse? And if you don't mind, I want to ask some sample of the web.xml file, because I don't know anything about it. I am really a noob in using this. I need this things for complishing my thesis work.
Thank you in advance.

Regards,

Marco

I have no idea what Eclipse does, so I can't help in that regard.

I'd suggest to install a servlet container that's independent of any IDE. Tomcat is an ever popular choice, and its version 5.5 is rock solid. It also comes with a number of example web apps, servlets and JSP files preinstalled that should get you started quickly. Its documentation has an extensive section on how web apps are structured under #3: First webapp.

there is no need for you to create WEB-INF folder separately it will be automatically created for you when you when you select Web Project.
