When you deploy Guacamole, you deploy the .war file. Whether you download
that .war file in pre-built form or build it yourself from source (the
.tar.gz) makes no difference. It is the same application. You do not need
to build Guacamole from source to create or to install extensions. That is
part of the point of extensions.

As discussed in your other thread [1], the "guac-manifest.json" file is a
file that needs to be part of your extension. It should be within your
extension's .jar file. It is *not* a part of the web application. Guacamole
will read the "guac-manifest.json" file from within your extension's .jar
file during startup.
