Hi frndz,

As we know we can create executable JAR file for Standalone application using Swing/AWT(GUI) in core java which can be executed in all java installed machines directly instead of executing it from Eclipse always...

But i wan to know how to create such executable file for Servlet or JSP program.



Thanks

That's not the way web apps work. Web apps are hosted remotely using an app server such as Tomcat. They're not intended to run locally like an executable program.

That said, there's probably some way to bundle a server and web app in an executable for running locally. It's not common, and it's certainly nothing I've ever considered doing.
