.WAR File Extension

Archived Konqeror (KDE) HTML Page

Question: What is an WAR File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an WAR file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an WAR file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .WAR extension are known as Archived Konqeror (KDE) HTML Page files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the WAR extension, please let us know.

How to open a WAR file:

The best way to open an WAR file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the WAR file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the WAR file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

A KDE .war file (Web Archive) is simply a compressed gzip tar file. Its usage is limited to KDEs web browser Konqueror. Basically, if you see a web page you want to save *exactly* as it appears on your screen, Konqueror saves it as a single gzipped tar file with all css, javascript, jpegs etc.

It's main weakness is that Konqueror is the only web browser that uses this method.

On the up side, you can store a large number of webpages, in a standard compressed format and they can then be viewed exactly as their designers wanted them to be seen.

You can open a .war file in any other browser in a two step process: 1. Unzip the archive in a directory then, 2. use any browser to open the "index.html" file there.
