You can't do that! You need to get your fundamentals clear on this. Just as you can't run a Java application without a JRE, you can't run a web application without a proper environment which is provided by the container.

EDIT: As for WARs, it's basically a JAR which is basically a ZIP file. So it's not a compiled executable as you might be mistakenly assuming; it's simply a zipped archive with a different extension. You can easily extract it's contents and you'll see that it's all the same stuff that you put into a web-apps directories; your libraries, your compiled classes, JSPs, HTML pages etc.

As Tarun Yadav has correctly stated.
A Java web application is, essentially, a plugin component to a Java Application Server and can not be deployed as a standalone application.

If you wanted that, you probably shouldn't have written it as a web app.
Why didn't you use Swing?
