hi all,

im importing a war file (selecting war file from the Import option). I want to edit the java files in the war and save and then make a new war file. The problem is im not able to save the files (i.e., it gets saved as a text file when i do ctrl+s but save button remains inactive . in essence, no compilation) where as im able to compile and a run a simple java project.
so obviously, when i try to make a war file , deploy in AS and execute.. its giving error.

If i had missed mentioning any useful info..please let me know.
