I have created a maven web application module, however I found some problems:
1) There will be a default jsp file named index.jsp generated, however this is its content:
<html> <body> <h2>Hello World!</h2> </body> </html>
1. Am I correct that you call New Module wizard and select maven-archetype-webapp to create the module from it? Then jsp content is provided by that Maven archetype, IDEA does nothing with that.
2. IDEA suggests to create JavaEE Web Page for directories under webapp root. Please check, does New menu contain this item, when webapp (or sub-directory) is selected. (I'm not sure, how your screenshot could illustrate the issue.)
