    How do I deploy a war to the default context ('/' or http://localhost:8080/)

    Steven Boscarine Novice

      How can I deploy a war in an ear to listen on the root context '/' ?

       

      When I try to deploy a war to the default context, I get:

       

      service jboss.web.deployment.default-host./: Failed to start service

      Here's my Maven build config for the ear project that used to work in 4.3:

      <plugin>

          <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>

          <artifactId>maven-ear-plugin</artifactId>

          <version>2.6</version>

          <configuration>

              <version>6</version><!-- Java EE 6 -->

              <defaultLibBundleDir>lib</defaultLibBundleDir>

              <modules>

                  <webModule id="Public_WebModule">

                      <groupId>${project.groupId}</groupId>

                      <artifactId>ourwar</artifactId>

                      <bundleFileName>public.war</bundleFileName>

                      <contextRoot>/</contextRoot>

                  </webModule>

              </modules>

          </configuration>

      </plugin>

       

      I didn't see a default application in the "manage deployments" dialog in the JBoss As management GUI.

       

      Thanks,

      Steven
