You're asking 2 different questions from my POV.

In the first, you want to make a WAR and include a special EXE file
inside the WAR. Then I imagine you would deploy the WAR somewhere and
the EXE would be downloadable.

In the second, you start talking about Nexus. If you just want people
to be able to download a file from Nexus, I'd use deploy:deploy-file
or similar to deploy the EXE by itself to Nexus.

What are you really trying to do? Why are you bringing up Nexus in the
first place?
