File Extension WAR

.WAR File

File extension: WAR
File type: Web Archive


Notes about the WAR file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The WAR file type is primarily associated with 'Java' by Sun Microsystems, Inc..

JSPs and HTTP servlets can access all services and APIs available in WebLogic Server. These services include EJBs, database connections by way of Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), Java Messaging Service (JMS), XML, and more.

A Web archive (WAR file) contains the files that make up a Web application. A WAR file is deployed as a unit on one or more WebLogic Server instances. A WAR file deployed to WebLogic Server always includes the following files:

  • One servlet or Java Server Page (JSP), along with any helper classes.
  • An optional web.xml deployment descriptor, which is a Java EE standard XML document that describes the contents of a WAR file.
  • A weblogic.xml deployment descriptor, which is an XML document containing WebLogic Server-specific elements for Web applications.
  • A WAR file can also include HTML or XML pages and supporting files such as image and multimedia files.

The WAR file can be deployed alone or packaged in an Enterprise application archive (EAR file) with other application components. If deployed alone, the archive must end with a .war extension. If deployed in an EAR file, the archive must end with an .ear extension.
