What kind of access do you have to the server - FTP, HTTP, SMB, ... ?

As I said, the answer depends on what kind of access you have to the server. JBoss sounds like there might be HTTP access, so can you mak ethe file available over HTTP? Possibly secured through authentication, if it's not supposed to be available to everyone?
