Why is an IntelliJ .war set-up different from an Eclipse .war set-up?
IntelliJ insists on putting the directories /META-INF and /WEB-INF in the root of the .war, while Eclipse puts the directories /META-INF and /WEB-INF inside the /WebRoot directory.
Does this matter?
I don't think the application servers care. I am looking for a reason why this is implemented differently? (Better yet, I am just trying to make sure I understand the reasoning.)
