I downloaded the JBOSS latest stable version 2.4.4
The documentation says that the deployment descriptor Editor i.e. ejx.jar file comes bundled with the download. But on searching, I found the file missing and also the supported plugins.
Can anyone help me out ?

That tool no longer ships with JBoss; it stopped shipping earlier in the 2.x branch. I don't recall at the moment where I read this; maybe it was in the JBoss forums, which is a great place for answers to your JBoss questions. To edit your deployment descriptors, use your favorite editor or IDE, and deployment/undeployment is as simple as adding/removing your .jar or .ear files from the deploy directory.

Arijit,
I'd look at JBoss 3.0. Release Candidate 2 was just released this week. The final probuct should be out soon.
Deployment to the new server is just placing your ear file in the deploy directory.
Just my 2 cents,

Thank you both Craig and Rick for your replies. Yeah I know that deploying the jar file is just a one step process -- putting the file in the deploy folder.
However, I feel that editing the deployment descriptor manually is a probably a tough job. So any downloads similar to EJX editor and which is compatible to JBOSS ? Is JBOSS going to release it in its next version ?
Thanks in advance.

AFAIK, there is going to be no editor for editing deployment descriptors with JBoss.
It's really not that difficult, but if you do want something to write those for you, look at XDoclet. It will write deployment descriptors, etc, to JBoss 2.0, WebLogic, Orion, and I believe WebSphere. It's a slick little tool. I like it
HTH,
rick

Thanks Rick, I will look into XDoclet. However, I would have preferred something which is GUI based but their GUI based interface is only at the alpha stage.
