It's described in the JSP 1.1 spec,

The "uri" attribute is either a URI relative to the application's URI root 
pointing directly to the TLD, or as in this case, a "symbolic" URI that is 
further defined in the web.xml file. In the web.xml file the symbolic URI is 
mapped to the real location. Look at the examples/WEB-INF/web.xml file in the 
Tomcat build directory to see how it works.
