Answer

You can have whatever structure you want and still use maven. Just define directory with your web resources.

<project>
...
<build>
<plugins>
  <plugin>
    <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
    <artifactId>maven-war-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>2.1.1</version>
    <configuration>
      <webResources>
        <resource>
          <!-- this is relative to the pom.xml directory -->
          <directory>resource2</directory>
        </resource>
      </webResources>
    </configuration>
   </plugin>
  </plugins>
 </build>
 ...
</project>
