I installed Apache 1.3.12/Tomcat 3.1 on an NT (SP5) machine and I am able to
view the jsp examples which come with the tomcat distribution.

I then defined a new context, wrote my own jsp files and tried to access
them.  I found that my files would not load unless there was a WEB-INF
directory under docbase of my new context.  Can somebody tell my why this
directory is necessary?

Is there any documentation out there on the contents of WEB-INF and the
directives in the web.xml file within?

Thanks in advance
