Subject RE: jsp pages under WEB-INF..
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2001 20:09:54 GMT
I see what you mean, but its a bit tricky to know where to draw the line
sometimes. A typical form which takes user input, may need to be navigated
directly, but at the same time there may be some grounds for wanting it
hidden under WEB-INF.
