I come from a Tomcat Background and I'm just now getting into J2EE Application servers for the scalability. When I created my non-J2EE web applications and place my packages inside of the /WEB-INF/lib directory JBoss does not seem so see them when I try to run the application. For example I'm trying to run AXIS applications or struts applications and it does not seem to see the path /WEB-INF/lib. Am I supossed to put these packages into a jar file and just place them into the /server/default/deploy directory or /server/default/lib etc. What am I missing here. Thanks for your help.

I normally put my war/ear files in /server/default/deploy with no problems. Are you putting it in this folder?

thats correct I deploy all applications into the /server/default/deploy directory. Is there a special class path I need to setup or anything?

no. check your web.xml and also check any ouput on the console when you deploy the war file.

I am facing a similar problem .
I am using JBoss 4.2.1GA where I am trying to deploy war files that
I had generated using Jidea6.0.2.

when i copy the JSF application war file generated by JIdea to /server/default/deploy -
to deploy the war file-
the server console gives an exception
suggesting a Deployment exception .

the same war file worked fine with Tomcat 5.5.7.

On the other hand a servlet's war file gets deployed perfectly.

waht special do I have to do to get JSF application working on JBoss??

Let's continue your discussion in the other new thread that you (rightly) created.
