Deploying static content on JBoss 7

I'm using JBoss 7.1.0.AS. I have a simple directory consisting of a bunch of static files. Is there a way I can copy this directory somewhere on my JBoss server and have the files served? I tried copying my directory (named "test") into the root web folder where other Java WAR files are located, but sadly, when I visit http://localhost/test/example.jpg (an example file I have), I get a 404.

Grateful for any pointers in the right direction, - Dave

You can put them in the root folder of any of your web apps (war files) just like you do with JSP or JSF, or whatever page format you use. You can also put them in the welcome-content folder, as long as you haven't disabled that in your configuration. Your config file (e.g. standalone.xml) should have: in the server definition.
I agree. Here's the link:
