Well, just copying the files to the directory works, but you also have
the risk that updates to the wps.ear file will delete your files.
Therefore the recommendation is to extract the ear, make the changes and
redeploy the ear file. Otherwise you have no guarantee that your changes
are persistent to updates of the ear file.
