Add external deployable files to Java EE projects on netbeans

Ever wondered how you’d deploy external CSS/JavaScript with servlets or JSPs?
This article will guide you on how to add a CSS/JavaScript (.css, .js) or any file in your project so that it gets inside your .WAR file too!

Here’s how to:

1) Start your netbeans: I am using 5.5
2) Goto Tools>Template Manager
3) Select or Expand “Other”
4) Click “Add…” and select the file which you want to include.
5) After selecting the file will appear in your “Others” list
6) In your project navigator, add a new file of this type.
7) Give a name to this file and feel excited!
