In order to be a proper J2EE web app, there must be a WEB-INF directory in the root directory of the application.
Tomcat doesn't just serve up files in directories as a plain web server would. It deploys separate applications. The presence of the WEB-INF directory is what tells Tomcat that this folder is to be treated as a web application and not just another folder on the file system.
