My webhosting company asked me to rename my .war file into ROOT.war

Dear experts,

I am quite worried that my web hosting company has asked me to rename my .war file as ROOT.war for upload into their file management system.

Now, since I can't read another .war file inside my Netbean IDE and am dying to see how the application run so I asked them how to upload the file.

They couldn't come back with an answer except to say that I have to figure it out how to integrate that .war file into my existing web application (which I really want to but I don't know how).

My question is that is it not possible to upload another .war file, perhaps in another directory ?

Hope someone can advise me. Thanks.

Are you allowed to run multiple web apps? I mean, ROOT.war will execute at the root web app level (no context), depending on how they deploy your war files it might be as simple as naming it something else so it'll run in that context.

Without knowing more it's hard to help, though.
