Creating Java Web Applications for Sending Embedded Images
Creating and Deploying the WAR File
Create a WAR file by right-clicking on your project and then clicking Run Packaging. You will have to right-click on the project and click Refresh before you see the WAR file. The file should be in the top level of your project.
Right-click on the WAR file, select Deployment, and then Deploy To. You will see a Target Choice dialog appear, allowing you to select which application server you would like to deploy to. I have JBoss 4.0.4 configured on my machine. After selecting the target configuration, you should see a dialog that confirms that the application was deployed.

Running Your Application in a Browser
Now, open your Web browser and try it out. Type http://127.0.0.1:8080/embed/pages/EmbedEmail.jsp or http://localhost:8080/embed/pages/EmbedEmail.jsp. to run the Web application you just built.
I hope this application has let you practice making a Web-based application with an e-mail facility very quickly and easily. It can be modified and enhanced by the readers according to their needs.
