Please tell me how to make an installable exe for my web based application with JBoss webserver , front end JSP - Struts and back end Oracle.

Can you explain a little bit more, because isn't a web application an application that people use a browser to access, and therefore wouldn't need an exe? They just open up Internet Explorer or better yet, Firefox. And point the URL to the website?

Or are you asking how to deploy your web application into JBoss? That would require creating a war file and copying that file into the JBOSS_INSTALL_DIR\server\default\deploy directory.

I think Meera wants to know how to deploy an application build in Jboss: and when I say deploy, I mean the Jboss install, the oracle install, etc.

She basically wants to push a button and have the server setup, oracle installation, and specific application deployment happen on her [windows] server:

Is that correct, Meera?
