I created WAR file in MyEclipse and deployed in WebSphere Application Server 6.0 (WAS) successfully.
I want to create WAR file in Eclipse and want to deploy in WAS 6.0.
Is there any plugin for WAR creation in Eclipse.
I created WAR file by standard command
jar -cvf HelloWorld.war *
But this WAR file doesn't deploy in WAS 6.0. Errors.

Please Help.

Hi Pankaj,

Try this. File>Export> Select the WAR file option and select the web project you want to export as a WAR file.
