I'm not aware of application server specific content in web.xml -
actually this file is supposed to follow a "standardized" DTD.  

As you are going to define your servlet mappings, parameters and all
that in this file, Ant cannot guess the content and therefore doesn't
include default web.xml files.

So yes, you are supposed to provide that file yourself.
