Q

What is an EAR file?1

What is an EAR file? EAR (Enterprise Application Archive) files are zipped archive files that contain J2EE application

components such as Web applications (packaged in WAR files) and EJBs. J2EE application containers import EAR files into the application environment at runtime and deploy the components within each EAR file as separate Web applications.
