If I read this right, 'filename.htm' is being stored in
webapp/filename/WEB-INF/filename.htm inside your .war file.  FWIW,
WEB-INF has no special meaning except in the top level of your .war
archive  A .war archive built like this will most likely deploy as a
static html folder and everything in it will be available as static files.

If you wanted to get filename.htm with the structure I think you are
describing, you should be requesting
/$WEBAPP/webapp/filename/WEB-INF/filename.htm where $WEBAPP is the
context your war file is deployed under.  Usually $WEBAPP is the name of
the war file.  For instance if the .war file is myapp.war, the request
path to filename.htm under tomcat would most likely be
myapp/webapp/filename/WEB-INF/filename.htm

To fix a *lot* of problems right off the bat, your war archive should
look more like:

filename.htm
WEB-INF
    web.xml
    classes
    lib
META-INF
    (what ever lives under here)

Then the request path (again assuming the war file is named myapp.war)
would be /myapp/filename.htm
