web.xml Deployment Descriptor

Java web applications use a deployment descriptor file to determine how URLs map to servlets, which URLs require authentication, and other information. This file is named web.xml, and resides in the app’s WAR under theWEB-INF/ directory. web.xml is part of the servlet standard for web applications.
