There will not be support for server.xml/webapps from me for the forseeable future as it does not allow for a true integration:
1. Inadequate integrated security. JBoss is moving to a notion of security domains that define user authentication, authorization, KeyStores needed by SSL
and other crypto functionality.
2. Virtual hosts are a notion that affect all exposed interfaces, not just the web container.
3. Optimized EJB invocations
4. log4j driven logging into the JBoss server log
5. One configuration filie and format: JBoss mbeans
Try one of the other non-bundled catalina contrib services that support this if you need it.
then i assume that you do not see the need for people to run apache out in front of catalina in the integrated jboss since it requires the warp connector (which is configured in server.xml)?
if that assumption is incorrect, then by what method would you see people doing this?
From all I've read on the mailing lists this issue is as yet unresolved...
Every configurable aspect of the integrated server will be done so via the embedded service mbean configuration. This will not require the use of the catalina server.xml file.
That's great news! Any idea when this will be available?
does this include all the conifgurable options currently in server.xml such as services, connectors, engines, host, contexts, loggers, etc. ?
No. Support for Loggers does not make sense as JBoss uses log4j and so all logging from tomcat should be routed through. Other features may or may not make sense in the context of the application server framework.
As to when, when time permits.
This is great news!
That means that in the future we can expect to be able to use Apache in front of Tomcat 4/ JBoss and we should be able to use Tomcat's SSL functionality as well...
Does this mean that for the time being, if I want to use virtual hosts on JBoss/Tomcat, I need to run Tomcat as a non-embedded service?

a directory to hold uploaded-imgs. I already have
myContext.war, which contains images directory --
so user able to browse with http://myserver/myContext/images.
Suppose I want to place all uploaded-imgs in context
I believe its impossible to put this into .war -- it
need to be put in "ordinary" directory, and add this map from custom dir into /myContext/images/uploaded-imgs in server.xml
Or are there other solutions, cause I did that in

I agree this is great news, but I am trying to get a bit more info in to the news story!
Having had a bit of a conversation on this topic in the mailing list, I gather that we may have to wait for JBoss 3 to see a warp connector. That "feels liek a long time"!
Can anyone confirm that?
Yes, from what I have heard this is accurate. I think it will be worth the wait.
