Eclipse supports and strongly encourages the separation of source and
build artifacts, such as compiled class files. WTP's Dynamic Web
Project fully supports this. By default, Java source is located under
the "src" folder in the project. The Java output folder defaults to
"build/classes". When the web project is published to a server, the
content under "build/classes" will be copied to the "WEB-INF/classes"
folder of the webapp. Thus, you don't need to do anything special to
get your Java classes under "WEB-INF/classes" in the published webapp.
Is there a reason you have redirected the Java output folder to what I
assume is the "WebContent\WEB-INF\classes" folder? There is some
support for this in WTP, called "single root", but if not configured
correctly, you can get the behavior you are seeing. My picture of
exactly what your project currently looks like and its dependencies
isn't clear enough to speculate further.
