New SAP NetWeaver J2EE stack (7.10) supports deploying War directly?
I just installed the preview version of NW 7.10 J2EE stack. I wonder if this version supports deploying WAR file directly by deploytool instead of packaging it in EAR. I tried it using deploy.bat but it failed. The error messsages in trace file are irrelevant and misleading.
Thanks in advance

sorry for the late reply.
Well, as I already said, the Deploy View is the tool you need. Although it's in the NWDS, it works in kind of "standalone" fashion. What I mean is that you don't need to import the WAR's content as NWDS project. Instead, you can just use the "Import EAR" button of the Deploy View, import your WAR file residing anywhere on your file system and then simply deploy it on the server.
Here's an outline of the procedure:
1. Start NWDS.
2. From the menu, open Window -> Show View -> Other -> Deploy View -> Deploy View.
3. Open the Deploy View window and press the Import EAR button.
4. Locate your archive for deployment.
5. Add it to the list of archives for deployment and press the deploy button.
Hope that helps.
