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.

Figure 1 shows the directory structure of the project in the package explorer view in Eclipse. Try to keep the structure similar to what is shown in the figure to avoid any errors and conflicts when following the steps in the article.

Running Your Application in a Browser

Now, open your Web browser and try it out. Type 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.
