You can't Jboss 5.0 doesn't use Tomcat 6 but jbossweb 2.1.x. You can't replace jbossweb by Tomcat 6.
Neil, welcome to the JBoss forum!
Not sure if this will work, but you could try removing server/xxx/deploy/jbossweb.sar. You might also need to remove server/xxx/deployers/jbossweb.deployer. Then you might also have to remove the web services stuff: server/xxx/deploy/jbossws.sar and server/xxx/deployers/jbossws.deployer.
Are you sure? I know people using such a setup (Jboss 5 + tomcat 6)
Thanks Peter :-)
Actually, I started tomcat 6 on different port (9090) without disabling the tomcat instance with jboss. i.e. currenty I am able to aceess http://localhost:8080 (getting the jboss page) and http://localhost:9090 (getting the tomcat page). In this situation, do I need to do anything further to get a connection between Jboss and my standalone tomcat?
Some forums points me to copy the jar files from Jboss to Tomcat lib. Is that a required correct step? I am pretty new to jboss/tomcat so I am not sure what exactly is going on in my setup

Here is what I did: I have an EJB JAR file deployed to JBoss AS. I have a WAR file deployed to Tomcat. My servlets (running in Tomcat) look up EJBs (running in JBoss AS) via JNDI and then call on those EJBs. I have to include the JAR files from the JBoss AS client directory in my WAR's WEB-INF/lib directory (I was lazy when I first did this an included them all, but a tool such as JBoss Tattletale should help you find exactly which JARs are required).
