Sorry to butt in, but with I believe a question related to what the OP 
was asking, and to the above :
Also ignoring the Maven and Ant fanatics (just quoting Bill's words), if 
I have a webapp consistig of just a couple of classes and a 
WEB-INF/web.xml config file, but this web.xml file contains some 
parameters that are "each-client-dependent", and some customers are 
insisting to receive the updates as a war file, how can I achieve that ?

Someone earlier here mentioned that you could put the settings in a file 
outside the application, but that is not possible in this case, or is it ?
