    Hi Sandeep Manjunath,

    I don't think you have to specify the war file on an mtar yaml file. It is different than a manifest file.

    The file extension is not configurable; it is predefined by the module type (.zip or .war).

    The module's type is the way the mtar builder knows how to build that module and what to look for in terms of deployable artifact.

    path is just the means to point a module to a directory where it should find that module. Name is just a name, you could choose whatever is easier to read and reference modules across the yaml.

    Best regards,
