Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 Prelude Application Deployment Guide

Directory Structure

When you deploy a module, the module is expanded from the WAR or JAR file to an open directory structure. The directories are named with _jar and _war suffixes. If you use the asadmin deploy command to deploy a directory, your directory structure must follow this same convention; see Directory Deployment. Module directory structures follow the structure outlined in the Java EE specification.
