This is part of build.xml written by someone else.

I am not able to see my servlet in web.xml

From the Ant script i see they are using jasper2 to automatically generate Web.xml

How do i add a servlet that i coded to web.xml


<jasper2
             validateXml="false"
             uriroot="${build.dir}/xmlapps"
             webXmlFragment="${build.dir}/webroot-generated_web.xml"
             outputDir="${build.dir}/xmlapps/WEB-INF/src" />

        <echo message="Compiling JSP Source"/>
 
    <javac destdir="${build.dir}/xmlapps/WEB-INF/classes"
           optimize="off"
           debug="on" failonerror="false"
           srcdir="${build.dir}/xmlapps/WEB-INF/src">  
           <classpath refid="class.path" />  
           <include name="**/*.java" />
    </javac>


     <loadfile property="webxmlappsinc.xml" srcFile="${build.dir}/webroot-generated_web.xml"/>

     <copy file="${build.dir}/xmlapps/WEB-INF/web-template.xml" toFile="${build.dir}/xmlapps/WEB-INF/web.xml"
        filtering="true" overwrite="true">
        <filterset begintoken="&lt;" endtoken="&gt;">
            <filter token="!-- JSP Servlet Insertion Point --" value="${webxmlappsinc.xml}"/>
        </filterset>
      </copy>

        <!-- Create XML Admin WAR File -->
        <jar jarfile="${build.dir}/xmlapps.war">
            <fileset dir="${build.dir}/xmlapps">
                <include name="**/**"/>
            </fileset>          
        </jar>        
  </target>

    <target name="clean">
      <delete dir="${build.dir}" />
    </target>
</project>

You might need to add it manually yourself. Or wait till somebody who knows Ant more than me posts.

The above ant structure pre-compiles the jsps in the web application and adds the generated java servlet references (from the jsps) into the web.xml. The web.xml that you see in the WEB-INF is a generated one

To add your servlet into the generated web.xml, you should add it to the template, that the generator is using.

In simpler words, add your servlet reference to ${build.dir}/xmlapps/WEB-INF/web-template.xml before the line:
<!-- JSP Servlet Insertion Point -->

Compare the ${build.dir}/xmlapps/WEB-INF/web-template.xml and the ${build.dir}/xmlapps/WEB-INF/web.xml and you'd understand what the ant script is doing.
Cheers
