The presence of web.xml file is must in the WEB-INF directory for web application?
Is there a default for this web.xml file in case the file is not present in WEB-INF directory?

I am not 100% sure but with regard to the second question I would say no as the purpose of deployment descriptor is to provide the container all the mappings and related information. In the absence of the web.xml file the container will have no clue regarding the applications deployed.
