hello ranchers,

Which of the following statements is true?
Choose at least one answer.

A. A war file is an xml configuration file
B. a war file must contain a directory called META-INF
C. a war file can contain servlets but not jsp pages
D. a war file can contain servlets, jsp and other resources
E. The top directory of a war file is the document root of the application

I guess top directory of a war file is META-INF directory itself. then this directory contain the exact web-application structure.

Agree or Disagree??

Disagree. When war file is extracted it's top (root) should be the name of the web application. META-INF is within the root directory (along with the WEB-INF and other files) of the web application.

Agree with vijitha . create a .war file and place it under webapp folder of tomcat,then start the tomcat. now you watch how the .war file extracted

Hi Poonam,
you have highlighted options B and E as the correct answer for the question. I feel that option D should also be included, since a war file can contain JSP, Servlets and other resources like image files, static HTMLs, js files etc...

Warm Regards,
Malan
