Hi,
I have read that one way to package an ejb application is to use an ear file(enterprise application archive resource file). An J2EE module can also be a WAR(web archive), a RAR(resouce archive), an ejb-jar file or a client jar file. Are there any advantages of using one method of deploying over another ? Thanks.

Hi Ketan,
Thanks for re-registering!
As for advantages of one archive file over another, I don't know of any myself (but I hardly know it all). I use .war and .jar files with success. I have not had any experiance using the other files you have mentioned. Hope this helps a little.
Best Regards,
Matt
