Below Figure1-4, in p.175.
"...when you want to host multiple web applications and JEE packages on a single web application."
I couldn't get it right.
Why multiple web apps on a single web app?
I guess 'server' is missing at the end but not sure.
please make this clear to me.

I passed this on to the author for him to clarify and he said:
This is intended as a restatement of standard JEE deployment:
You can host several web applications (WAR files) and packages (JAR files) in an Enterprise Application File (EAR). Technically, you can also included resource adapters (RAR) but these are less common.
So there are several WAR files (web applications) that are packaged together and can function as a single large web application (EAR file).
I hope that helps,
