Hi guys, I my quest to understand J2EE and its possibilities, I went through may docs but couldn't find answers to some basic concepts. Please answer these:
1. What is termed as a deployable object? Is it an archive i.e. a WAR, EAR, etc. Or something that comes to being after deployment of an archive? 2. Can I create my own archive type? 3. Can I access some resource of another deployed web archive? e.g. f I have an XML descriptor in another WAR deployed on the server, how can I access it? 4. Would all this be application server specific or could it be made portable?
