Eclipse-Where is the web.xml file?

bhession asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I have setup eclipse but I haven't use it in while. When creating a new Tomcat project doesnt the IDE create a default web.xml file? I am using eclipse again and went to edit the web.xml file but it wasnt in the web/INF folder. I am just wondering if there is a problem with my IDE or is this normal, do you have to write the web.xml file yourself?
