Subject Re: Missing web.xml file causes UnknownModuleTypeException

The problem with this is that for Tomcat everything is a webapp so that's
easy to guess which module typ eit is.

TomEE can manage jar, war and ear so we need something to distinguish them.

The WEB-INF folder is enough (and i think the spec don't say it is
optional).
