Easy Eclipse and JBoss plug-in

I know that this topic have already been discussed a lot but I'm not succeeding on that installation.
So, I describe below step by step what I've done to see if someone can help, ok?
1. I've installed EasyEclipse Server Java Version:
2. I've downloaded jboss-4.2.2.GA into C:\JBoss\jboss-4.2.2.GA => under this directory I checked the sub-directories bin, client, docs, lib and server
3. I created the environment variable JBOSS_HOME pointing to C:\JBoss\jboss-4.2.2.GA
4. Now I'm confused how to connect the JBOSS installation to EasyElipse ...
I go to Windows/Preferences/Server option Installed Runtimes and click on Add, then select JBoss v4.0 under JBoss folder and click Next.
This is the point where I don't know what to do because if I fill in the Application Server Directory browsing to C:\JBoss\jboss-4.2.2.GA I get the message error: Missing classpath entry C:\Ismael\JBoss\jboss-4.2.2.GA\server\default\lib\javax.servlet.jar

I'm stuck on it.

Please, could anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or missing something?

I can't help you fix the problem (I don't have EasyEclipse) but I can tell you what the problem is. Between 4.0.x and 4.2.x, various JAR files changed names/locations. The "JBoss v4.0" option you are using expected everything to be where it was in 4.0.x. You really need a "Jboss v4.2" option, and only the EasyEclipse developers could tell you if such an animal exists.

By the way, even the "JBoss v4.0" option might not work for all versions of JBossAS 4.0.x because the team tended to move things around and even replace/update entire subsystems between point releases. Fortunately, they have been better with 4.2.x point releases (one of the few benefits from the Red Hat acquisition).

I agree. Here's the link:
