You don't have to do anything special. If you just copy and paste your .war file into JBoss server instance that you're running, JBoss will automatically extract and deploy it for you.

Could u please let me know in what folder under the JBoss-4.0.1 installation folder i need to copy the .war? What do you intend to say by "JBoss server instance that you're running" ? Pls clarify. Thanks

If I'm not mistaken JBoss contains a server folder. In that folder there are several preconfigured servers (you see them as folders). There is an "all" server for example. Inside the configured server folder there should be a map called "deploy" you could paste it there. So this should be the path: <JBoss>/servers/<preconfigured server/deploy
you can run the preconfigured server from the command prompt: run -all
I don't have JBoss installed right now, so I can't give you more detailed info. But I hope you get the idea on how it works.
