Hi,

WAR file is something like your JAR but it is web application scope.

So....

If let say that now, you develop J2EE web application using Tomcat, then 6 months later, you decide to move to bea weblogic. What you can do is that you need to move this WAR file into Bea Weblogic folder and that's all.

Mmm....

But I strongly recommend you to use Java IDE such as Eclipse, JBuilder or etc to help you from doing it manually.

Yes, okay, so you should learn all of the things. After you understand it then you can use IDE.

Btw, thanks for the point.
