Hi All,
I don't know whether its a stupid question or not, but I am a little bit curious about this.
So my question is can we change the location of a deployment descriptor in a web application from WEB-INF to some other place.
Can we move it outside the WEB-INF or can we put it inside any subdirectory of WEB-INF.

If yes then where should we have to mention it, so the container gets to know about it.

Thanks

You're not allowed to change. Its the directory structure. Only then your WEB CONTAINER can identify and run your web app accordingly..
