Deployment question: put wars in a EAR

I would like to know under what circumstances we should put wars into one ear. If I have two web applications, each use their own database, should I put the two WARs into the same EAR? Thanks.

If they are part of the same enterprise application, then yes.

Thanks for the reply.

But I am still not very clear about the concept...

Suppose each WAR is already a complete web application. Can we put both WARs under the same EAR? If yes, then, both WAR contains WEB-INF/web.xml, which xml file the application is referring?

Each war would have a different context-root.
