    Default Re: Dynamic Web Project in java

    I have three suggestions which might help:

    - Generally speaking META-INF is an internal Java Metadata directory (Metadata implies data about data). Unless you're using Spring, META-INF will be automatically updated by your IDE or development environment. You should not really worry about what it's in this directory and you should not manually interfere with it especially if you're a beginner. Commonly the META-INF contains the MANIFEST.MF which defines extensions and package related data

    - From the general nature of your question it sounds like you need a fundamental grasp of Java Web applications. I recommend reading a book on this. The books by Mike Murach are the best I've seen yet. You'd be hard pressed to find any single source that gives magic answers.

    - If you need more information be a lot more specific about your question. What exactly do you want suggestions regarding? What do you understand about META-INF? What don't you understand?

    Hope this helps
