<h1 class="topictitle1">Web projects</h1>
<div><p>Web projects hold all of the Web resources that
are created and used when developing your Web application. The first step
to creating or importing a Web application is to create either a static or
a dynamic Web project. Static Web projects are meant to contain only simple
Web site resources, such as HTML files. Dynamic Web projects are used to structure
Web applications that will use more complicated, dynamic Web technologies,
such as JavaServer Pages files, and possibly data access resources.</p>
<p>Though the Web project is structured on your file system in compliance
with the J2EE Web application standard for deployment purposes, the Project
Explorer view is designed to show the most convenient display of project resources
for use while you are actually developing the Web application. When you are
finished developing your Web application, you use the Web project to deploy
the correct resources to the server. These resources will be packaged in a
file called a Web archive, or WAR file.</p>
