Description

A WAR file is an archive that contains Java applications and components. It is similar to a .JAR file, but includes commands that are processed by a Web server.

WAR files can be run as applications using Apache Tomcat. The contents of a WAR file can be extracted with decompression programs such as Stuffit Expander and WinRAR.
