@ Ankit: sure, that is possible i know! but i just wanted to try n learn deploying without any IDE to help me! (i'm just getting too much dependent on netbeans now i guess )
@ Chandra: it is the Admin Console to be more specific! i know it exists but i guess there you have option just to deploy the processed .war or .ear files! ( the deploy tool actually helped in organizing the physical structure of the application and also the most important, ejb-jar.xml
@ Jeanne: no, the deploy tool didnt' do that (the former).. it just, as i said above, helped us with the deployment descriptor file and creating the enterprise archive file!
of course we can do that with the help of the command window, but the GUI really helped!
