Hello

I have a WebApp in Netbeans.

When I build the project, a .war file is created in ../dist .

How can I get a jar/exe file?

Thanks in advance

Hi!
You do not create exe or JAR files from a web application project, since such a project must be deployed to, at least, a web container in order to run.
A WAR file is a special kind of JAR file used to deploy web applications to web containers and application servers.
Best wishes!

Thanks for you reply

So you are saying that the only way to run this app, is via IDE?

I have created the app, and the idea was to share the app with other collegues wihtout the need of the IDE...

No, the only way to run the web application is to deploy it into, for instance, Tomcat, Jetty, GlassFish or something similar.
Best wishes!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
