How do I change "WebContent" folder to another value in a Dynamic Web
Project in Web Tools 3.0?

I am using Maven which wants to put web content in a subfolder. But I
couldnt find the setting to customize the web content path.

Thank you
Ben

AFAIK you have manually edit the file called
org.eclipse.wst.common.component in .settings of your project.
Use CTRL+SHIFT+R to open it.
Replace WebContent with the folder you need.

There's an enhancement request open to provide a UI way of editing that
file:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=133359
Please comment and/or vote on it if you are interested.

You can specify an alternate web content directory during project
creation. If you already have a project created, you can invoke the
refactor action on WebContent and specify the new location. I believe that
will update the component metadata.

Why I can't set root folder as "WebContent" in new Dynamic Web Project
Wizard?
Only manually edit the file org.eclipse.wst.common.component.
