here it goes..

First of all, JBoss has been tested with tomcat 3.2.1, newer version shall be configured in similar way I think.

Tomcat libs must be in classpath; then edit JBOSS_HOME/conf/default/jboss.conf and un-comment ClassPathExtension mbean for the tomcat lib directory to:



<MLET CODE = "org.jboss.util.ClassPathExtension" ARCHIVE="jboss.jar" CODEBASE="../../lib/ext/">
  <ARG TYPE="java.lang.String" VALUE="TOMCAT_HOME/lib/">
  <ARG TYPE="java.lang.String" VALUE="Tomcat">
</MLET>

edit JBOSS_HOME/conf/default/jboss.jcml and uncomment the EmbeddedTomcatService mbean. Locate:


  <mbean code="org.jboss.tomcat.EmbeddedTomcatService" name="DefaultDomain:service=EmbeddedTomcat" />

Always in jboss.jcml, check that J2eeDeployer is:


  <mbean code="org.jboss.deployment.J2eeDeployer" name="J2EE:service=J2eeDeployer">
    <attribute name="DeployerName">Default</attribute>
    <attribute name="JarDeployerName">:service=ContainerFactory</attribute>
    <attribute name="WarDeployerName">:service=EmbeddedTomcat</attribute>
  <mbean>

Add the following lines to TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml

<!-- JBoss, Setup the class loader heirarchy to enable in VM call optimization.
      Add after the org.apache.tomcat.context.WorkDirInterceptor ContextInterceptor
-->
        <ContextInterceptor className="org.jboss.tomcat.ContextClassLoaderInterceptor" />
<!-- JBoss, Add the jboss-web.xml parser. Add after the org.jboss.tomcat.ContextClassLoaderInterceptor
            ContextInterceptor
-->
        <ContextInterceptor className="org.jboss.tomcat.naming.JbossWebXmlReader" />
<!-- JBoss, Set the request thread classloader. Add before the org.apache.tomcat.request.SessionInterceptor
            RequestInterceptor
-->
        <RequestInterceptor className="org.apache.tomcat.request.Jdk12Interceptor" />
<!-- JBoss, Map the current web user to the SecurityAssociation principal. Add
            after the org.apache.tomcat.request.SimpleRealm RequestInterceptor
-->
        <RequestInterceptor className="org.jboss.tomcat.security.JbossRealm" />

To compile JSP files, add the JDK lib/tools.jar file to the classpath in run.sh/run.bat, or copy tools.jar to the TOMCAT_HOME/lib directory.

Starting JBoss with run.sh/run.bat you should now see the following Tomcat related output in your log messages:

Using configuration "default"

hope this will help you..

dear rama

CLASSPATH=  .;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar;%CATALINA_HOME%\common\lib\servlet.jar

CATALINA_HOME=  C:\tomcat

JAVA_HOME=  C:\j2sdk1.4.1_03

PATH=  %CATALINA_HOME%\bin

in order to use JBoss application server and tomcat server, which I installed in different directories in C drive as follow
C:\JBoss-2.4.9
C:\tomcat4.1.3
would you please helpme how would i set all correct paths to compile ejb files

I am newly starting learning this area, so would you explain it step by step.
I dont understand what u meant these following codes:
where u r saying edit classpath:

Tomcat libs must be in classpath; then edit JBOSS_HOME/conf/default/jboss.conf and un-comment ClassPathExtension mbean for the tomcat lib directory to:



<MLET CODE = "org.jboss.util.ClassPathExtension" ARCHIVE="jboss.jar" CODEBASE="../../lib/ext/">
  <ARG TYPE="java.lang.String" VALUE="TOMCAT_HOME/lib/">
  <ARG TYPE="java.lang.String" VALUE="Tomcat">
</MLET>

edit JBOSS_HOME/conf/default/jboss.jcml and uncomment the EmbeddedTomcatService mbean. Locate:


  <mbean code="org.jboss.tomcat.EmbeddedTomcatService" name="DefaultDomain:service=EmbeddedTomcat" />

Always in jboss.jcml, check that J2eeDeployer is:


  <mbean code="org.jboss.deployment.J2eeDeployer" name="J2EE:service=J2eeDeployer">
    <attribute name="DeployerName">Default</attribute>
    <attribute name="JarDeployerName">:service=ContainerFactory</attribute>
    <attribute name="WarDeployerName">:service=EmbeddedTomcat</attribute>
  <mbean>
