FYI - it appears there is no easy way to do this yet, but there is a JIRA ticket for it. Not sure of number. Once suggested way to do this was to use essentially rewrite rules, but that would take extra management and not be easy for deployment for our deployment group. We went with the approach of simply renaming the esb file to be checklist-service.esb instead of checklist-service-1.0.0.esb when we are requesting new deployment. Not as clean as having a jboss-web.xml file, but not terrible.
