For web projects, Eclipse has this concept of a Web Module.
Every dynamic web project deployed has a web module. for example, if you go to the Server the web app is deployed on and the click the modules tab for the project.
However, I can't see the module name anywhere on the project properties. I can only see a reference to in the hidden file:
org.eclipse.wst.common.component which has the tag:
I am wondering what is the significance of this property? When is it ever used? It is not used for the web context name so what is it used for?
Also, if I add an external application to my server for example the jsp-examples that comes bundles with tomcat, I can specify the document-base and the path but I can't specify the a module name for it and eclipse doesn't assign one.
And what are the limitations of a web application which doesn't have a web module name?
