EAR stands for enterprise archive.

We can add our .war and .ear files to this. Provided it requires application.xml file which is placed inside META-INF folder and it requires .war and .jar files too. .war and .jar can idependetly added as an .ear file.

application.xml contains a tag called <module> where we configure our .jar and .war files.
