After much torture, I figured out that JBoss was failing to start properly because it couldn't find the keystore. To enable https/ssl, you just need to create a keystore. I put mine in jboss-3.2.1_tomcat-4.1.24\server\default\conf. Then, go to the jboss-3.2.1_tomcat-4.1.24\server\default\deploy\jbossweb-tomcat.sar\META-INF file and insert the following xml below the regular http connector xml:
