  2. Copy JAR files under following list to myZK/WEB-INF/lib
    • {YOUR_ZK_UNZIP_FOLDER}/dist/lib
    • {YOUR_ZK_UNZIP_FOLDER}/dist/lib/ext
    • {YOUR_ZK_UNZIP_FOLDER}/dist/lib/zkforge

Create Deployment Descriptor(Web.xml)

web.xml is called the web application deployment descriptor. This is a XML file that defines servlets, servlet mappings, listeners, filters, welcome files etc.

Deployment descriptor is a heart of any J2EE web application, so every web application must have a web.xml deployment descriptor directly under WEB-INF folder.
