The typical project structure of web application under Tomcat should be as follows
Tomcat installation directory

  • bin
  • conf
  • lib
  • logs
  • webapps
    • docs
    • examples
    • project 1
      • html, jsp, css,images
      • image folder [optional for more organization]
      • WEB-INF
        • web.xml
        • classes [folder]
          • Class1.class
          • Class2.class
        • lib [libraries only relevant to your web application and you do not wish to share it through global "lib" folder in Tomcat installation directory]
        • jsf [optional folder or any other web frameworks]
    • project 2
    • ROOT
  • work

So basically you have almost right you just need to put files in correct folders.
