          The "admin-console" shipped by JBoss seems to be going in re-deployment loop. Is this a clean installation of JBoss or did you change anything? Does this happen even if you have not deployed your application? And which version of Java and which operating system are you on?

            I am still facing this problem. All i did was , copy admin-console.war from default/deploy folder to standard folder and then run JBoss AS 5.1 by executing following cmd. (This was wriiten in Documentation).


                   run.bat -c standard


            This happens even if there are no applications. I am using java1.6.27 and OS windows 7.

              I'm sorry for updating such an old thread, but yesterday I faced the same error when I tried to secure the JBoss AS 5.1 GA default applications. But I have been able to find the cause (at least in my personal case) and want to share it with other users.


              I'm used to make a backup of every configuration file which I edit. So when I was modifying the deployment descriptor of "admin-console.war" I made a copy of "./WEB-INF/web.xml" and left it in such directory. Then, when I started JBoss AS, it started to report about an infinite redeployment of such application. At first, I thought that the deployer detected a file name similar to "web.xml" (the backup file) and it triggered the inifnite re-deployment. But then I renamed it, even left it empty (0 characters), and it still caused the error.


              So my conclusion is that this directory, ."/admin-console.war/WEB-INF", must contain the original files only, although you may edit them, of course. Since this application was made with Seam and I've never used it, I don't know if it's an old known bug in this framework or what. Fortunately in JBoss AS 7.1.0 Final we haven't to mess with these things .



              PD: On Linux it seems that you can add more files there as long as you set them as invisible, naming them with the dot preffix. For example, my backup file is called ".web.xml~20120606" . It's ignored in the deployment.
