if their are changes in source files ,then file names in SPEC file also need to be change.
I have tried putting * instead of file names,but while installing the package it brings all other files from other packages also..
is their any way were do need to put file names in the file section.

Remember to *not* build RPM's as root account user. Using wildcards does work. I've made some changes to your spec file to test it:
Code:
Summary: Roamware VSMS
Name: RWARVSMS
Version: 6.0
Release: R60805
Copyright: Roamware Inc. Cupertino, USA.
Group: Application
Source: %{name}-%{version}.tar.gz
Vendor : Roamware Inc.
BuildRoot: %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}

%description
It contains binary, cfg, shared libraries, prompts and application specific cron, operations, troubleshooting scripts.

%prep
%setup -q

%install
mkdir -p ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}/opt/Roamware
cp -dRf *${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}/opt/Roamware

%post

%clean
if [ -d %{buildroot} ] ; then
  rm -rf %{buildroot}
fi

%files
%defattr(-,root,root)
/opt/Roamware/*

Then you miss an rpm resource file. Touch ~/.rpmmacros and fill it with this:
Code:
%_topdir	/home/YOURACCOUNTNAME/redhat
%_tmppath	%{_topdir}/tmp
%_builddir	%{_topdir}/BUILD
%_rpmdir	%{_topdir}/RPMS
%_sourcedir	%{_topdir}/SOURCES
%_specdir	%{_topdir}/SPECS
%_srcrpmdir	%{_topdir}/SRPMS
Note this makes all the SPECS, BUILD, SOURCES and such relative to your /home/YOURACCOUNTNAME/redhat directory.

I already told you: "touch ~/.rpmmacros" which is short for "create a file called .rpmmacros in your home directory". Maybe you should read a generic *NIX tutorial like Rute's first?
