Is web.xml automatically created?

On your article at, there is an example of using a Service endpoint interface and its implementation to create the necessary files to deploy the web files as a Web Service.
If we follow the first scenario, starting with the .java source files and the wsdl, we can use wscompile to create the model file. We then create the Deployment Descriptor (jaxrpc-ri.xml) as described in the web page (copy and paste). After this, we create the WAR file. In the screenshot, we have a web.xml file included, but I couldn't see how that was created. Am I correct in assuming that I should create the file, or can this be done automatically?

Thanks for any clarification of this.

Kind Regards,

Edward Bateman
