Incidentally, I'm using all the default config files that came with the install, the jboss.jcml and jboss.properties in the jboss/conf/catalina directory, and the server.xml and web.xml in /catalina/conf/
I am also trying JBoss+Catalina and I get an HTTP Internal Server Error 500 trying to load Tomcat's initial page although I don't get log errors when starting JBoss w/Catalina.
To get more information have a look in
by default this should display some DEBUG information.
Dropping a war file into $CATALINA_HOME/webapps
does not get the web app deployed. Also,
when dropping a war file into $JBOSS_HOME/deploy
results in an exception being thrown by the
J2EEDeployer. Complaining that the web-app
tag can't be found. Note that this works
perfectly with JB/TC version 2.4/3.2.3
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps is for running tomcat/catalina by itself.
Do you want to post the WEB-INF/web.xml from your war?
It is possible that web-app is not recognized because <!DOCTYPE is missing in web.xml. By the way, it looks like web.xml for interest servlet in documentation-example.zip has <!DOCTYPE ... > missing.
You need something like:
PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"
> Dropping a war file into $CATALINA_HOME/webapps

To the best of my understanding, in order to deploy a web application it's xxx.war has to be placed in $JBOSS_DIST/deploy directory, not webapps. Tomcat root context and examples are not deployed after install, if you want to deploy them, you can do the following:
For root context:
jar cvf ROOT.war *
mv ROOT.war $JBOSS_DIST/deploy/.war
For Tomcat examples:
jar cvf examples.war *
mv examples.war $JBOSS_DIST/deploy/

See my previous post about <!DOCTYPE (or it can be something else :-))
