[ajug-members] Upgrading servlet platform question

We have an early servlet application (servlet spec 1.2). It was written
before our developers had any knowledge of web app frameworks. It is
currently running on Windows NT 4.0, IIS 4.0, and JRun (Application
server). Yes, that's pretty old. And not very secure. We restrict access
to only local network users because of that. I want to move the
application to Apache/Tomcat on Linux.
The application consists of just servlets (no JSPs), a few static html
pages, JDBC jar files, and a .css style sheet. The servlets are compiled
as stand-alone class files. They aren't in a war file. We tried putting
them onto an Apache/Tomcat 4.1.31 server. However, I don't think we are
getting the web.xml done correctly. Can we move the source code into a
project in something like NetBeans or Eclipse and let it build a proper
war file and/or web.xml?
As you can guess, we have quit using Java as our main development
platform. This may be an "easy" question for the experienced pros on this
list (I read to stay current with the topics of discussion). Any help you
can provide is greatly appreciated.
