Subject Re: Significance of writing an additional Descriptor file
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2008 06:54:30 GMT
web.xml is the Java EE specific deployment descriptor for the web
application.  geronimo-web.xml is the Geronimo app server specific
deployment plan that usually provides mapping of any resources and other
configuration used by the web application.  Deployment plan can either be
packaged in the WAR file under WEB-INF directory (in this case the file name
should be geronimo-web.xml) or  specified at deployment time (in this case
there is no restriction on the file name used).
