Thanks for the suggestion.

We agree that .ear cannot be deployed on tomcat .

Our requirement is as under

1.      We have deployed a binary as  below  in webapps 
2.      The same is explored and  deployed as   hub#app#classic#security.
3.      Now we are trying to access the file inside 
4.      The war file name is hub#app#classic#security.war
5.      and context path is hub/app/classic/security.

Kindly suggest how to proceed

You can't. Tomcat does not support EARs.

Tomcat also ignores any <context-root>...</context-root> in a WAR file.
As per the Servlet spec, any such setting may be over-ridden by container 
specific configuration and since Tomcat derives the context path from the file 
name it always overrides any <context-root>...</context-root>.

The process Tomcat uses to determine the context path is documented at:
