I've used JBoss 3.x and 4.x for several years now. It's very easy to deploy an app and get started. All the WAR/EAR and foobar-ds.xml datasource files should be copied into your %JBOSS_HOME%/server/default/deploy folder. To start the server, simply double-click the run.bat in %JBOSS_HOME%/bin folder.

Make sure you have the following environment variables set in Windows: JAVA_HOME (pointing to JDK 5 installation directory), ANT_HOME, JBOSS_HOME.

Here's some more info:

Thanks Uchana , I did try JBoss but had problems connecting to MS SQl server so I thought it may be better to use Glassfish .
Do you have a tutorial for JBoss which creates a small ejb 3.0 app?
All help is greatly appreciated .

Many Thanks

I am using Netbeans5.5 with Sun Application server 9.1 which is based on GlassFish.I found it easy to use specially if you have experience from any previous Sun application server.
Even if you don't have experience from any previous Sun application server,Sun Application server 9.1 is still easy to use with Netbeans5.5.
I agree. Here's the link:
