JAR command doesn't have -d option. You may want to use another command, such as unzip, e.g.
unzip my.war -d newFolder
If you insist of using a JAR command, what you can do is to create a shell script that create a directory and move the jar file into that directory and do the extraction from there.
Hope it helps.
