    Rajeev,

    take a look at the following two articles:

    http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2001/03/15/tomcat.html
    http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2001/03/29/tomcat.html

    I think that they will give you a pretty good idea of what a WAR file is and how is being used ( in case of Tomcat ).

    Hope this helps,
    Nicky
