Hi,
you can definitely add files inside .war in installed Apps
you will have to compile the class files and property files inorder to obtain the .war file.

try this:
stop all app servers mapped to the application, replace files, delete cache , tranlog , start servers.

you can use the admin console to export the war and download to desktop, import into AST or RAD and make needed changes, re-export the war with appropriate descriptors to deploy.
