Rajani, Now I understand. RAD is unforgiving about changing that particular detail. If you aren't editing the project, you can jar it up and have you EAR refer to it as a .war file. If you are editing the project in RAD (as is more likely), you do need to change the directory structure.
If you are planning on using RAD from now on, I recommend just changing the structure and committing to CVS.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
