Hi, How does one make a *%$#@ .war file? I am trying to use BEA Weblogic 6, and it looks for my JSP's in .war files, which I cannot find out how to make. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Skip

Forget it. As usual, the moment I ask an obvious question, 20 seconds later I find the answer. (Of course if I had not asked, I would have run around this forever.) Answer to this question: start the j2ee server, start the deploytool, fiddle with deploytool until it works. I'm going to actually do the j2ee tutorial (http://java.sun.com/j2ee/tutorial/index.html) and learn something. Skip [This message has been edited by Skip Cole (edited April 04, 2001).]
You can do it the long way, building a directoiry structure and usinj "jar" to make the WAR file, but this can be a bit tricky if you are not fully conversant with the layout and contents of a WAR file. These days I use the Ant build tool (from http://jakarta.apache.org/ ) for most of my java development, and it conveniently comes with a "war" task which makes generating a sensible war from a project almost trivial.
