You're almost there, and if you want to manually create a WAR file (provided that you have a directory that you want to WAR up) just change directory to it and type...
Notice the "." at the end of the command, this says include all of the files in the current directory. Alternatively, you can include specific files and directories by simply naming them. Check out the JAR tool documentation (for Windows) or the JAR tool documentation for Solaris/Linux as appropriate. Once you've done this a few times, as Rick suggested, you'll probably want to check out an automated tool such as Ant. All the best Simon
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
