EAR vs WAR

Hello, 

 

I stumbled on this topic but I miss the basic idea. To my knowledge, unless I write custom Java activities, Pega writes all the code from my application configuration. Hence as Pega developer I don't really mind about the generated code or technology behind the scene.

If this is correct, why should I care about choosing EAR vs WAR deployment? Is there any Pega feature or functionality that only works if I decide to deploy EAR file?

I saw other posts on this subject (https://collaborate.pega.com/question/advantages-deploying-pega-war-vs-ear) where things like EJB and 2FC are mentioned, but again, unless I write a Java activity that specifically uses EJB (as an example) how this should be relevant to me as Pega developer (configuration, no code)?

Furthermore, does this apply to PegaCloud as well? Do I have the choice to decide EAR/WAR deployment?

 

Cheers.
