They are created in the same way as JAR files - but with a different
extensions.
All the tools that work with JAR's work with WAR's

.war files are Web ARchives I think, some kind of zipped files. I never
handled with it.
Need to try.

Betreff: RE: User Authorization

Thomas - I don't really know it. I found a reference to "web application" in

the servlet api

http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/2.2/javadoc/index.html

and it said the information "may be in the .war file"

I did find some .war files, but they are not text files, so I'm mystified
who to interact with them.
