it depends what you understand under terms "DECOMPILING"
But if you have NetBeans and want just to look what is inside the war
you can just use NetBeans. Go to Files Tab, open the target location (project type dependent)
locate the WAR file and find an icon showing a little glass. click on the plus sign to open it.
Decompiling a war, jar, aar, ear, is all about the same, NetBeans or ZIP or a GUI based TUGzip or so.
a WAR file then contains classes or classes packaged into jar files, for jar you can take JAR
For classes you can take NetBeans too, but it will only show the class internals when you place the mouse
over /target/classes/…/*.class it will show nothing if you place the cursor over a class packaged into a
jar or a war. (maybe this is a NB BUG)

I've been trying to use the different plugs-in available on NetBeans for decompiling a .war file but without success. :(
Basically, after installed the plug in...I do not actually know what to do in order to decompile my .war file.....
I tried and tried but just couldn't figure out how to.
Or is there another way to decompile a .war file....
Hope somebody out there can advise me. Many thanks.
