As a matter of principle, Eclipse tries to keep built artifacts, like
class files, separate from source files. The WEB-INF folder under the
WebContent folder is part of the project's source tree for resources, so
compiled classes directed elsewhere as you have noted. Assembly into
the "war structure" occurs when the project is published to a server for
testing and when you export your project as a war file.

You can use whatever package you want for your servlets. I don't see
"org.eclipse.wtp" occurring in my projects, so I'm not clear on what
this refers to.
