Hi
I have a web application that i ran on several servlet containers such as, tomcat, jrun, weblogics & Resin. Its working fine, and i packed the site to a war file and tryed to deploy the site as a war file at the mentioned containers, worked fine aswell.
Now this is my problem.
Using WebSphere 4.0.3 Advanced Admin console i run the "install Enterprise Application wizzard". i select my war file and click next and i get the following error :
Exception:
java.lang.NullPointerException

Is there a way to deploy the site without using jar archives? (such as just copying the site to ex. ./webapps like in tomcat), or maybe making a ear file of it ?
whats the difference between war & ear ?
