In this case you can create RPM with unpacked WAR file. Application
servers usually unpack WARs anyways.
That is how it is done, we make it into a xxx.war _directory_ instead of a xxx.war
If symlinks inside WAR files were supported then one could repack

It works in some servers but I agree it may not be portable.
