My JBoss AS 4.0.5 installed with EJB3 profile (Seam getting started guide...) takes, including my small application, 15 seconds from cache cold start. Redeploy takes about 5 seconds. So if you follow the getting started guidelines, you should see some other numbers already. 2:30 minutes can only be explained with a completely different setup/install, or a very very slow machine.

Whats the spec of this machine from hell you use? I use an Core 2 Duo (Merom) with 2,13 GHz & 1GB Ram and JBoss AS needs ~12s without any deployed applications. Even with the smallest seam app (e.g. seam-gen generated framework) it takes 30-35s to start.
Further all getting started guides only say "Install JBoss AS with the EJB3 profile". Is this what you are referring to or did I miss something? I think he meant how to slime the EJB3 profile down a bit - e.g. no CORBA, ....
I'm using a plain JBoss AS 4.0.5 with the EJB 3 profile selected in the installer. My computer is a fast Macbook. Of course you can probably trim down the JBoss install some more, AFAIK there are some wiki pages about it somewhere.
