Ramesh,
A J2EE app can have mutliple web modules. So you can use the existing web project and include it in your enterprise application project.

What exactly do you mean by reusing the war file. Are you trying to use some classes int it. You cannot put the war in some lib directory, it wont work.

Ramesh,
That's what I was trying to explain. A WAR can be associated with different EARs without changing anythings. Steps in WSAD:
1) Go to J2EE perspective
2) Expand Enterprise application branch
3) Double click on EAR you want to add the WAR too
4) Click modules tab
5) Add WAR
