A google search of "ear file" brings up 8.8 million hits. I'll bet one of those will answer your question.

What an ear file is really has not much room for subjectivity based upon experience. Such questions are best answered with your own research.

What I got from one site is: EAR file has whole Enterprise Application in compressed form.

Now what is the difference b/w Web Application and Enterprise Application?

Thanks.

with the same question make a simple search in servlet forum and scwcd forum. I bet you will end up in really good explanations. Before posting a question try making a search in the forum, and figure out whether it has already been discussed. In that way you save lot of your precious time.
