You can wrap your WAR in an EAR and set the context
check out what I wrote in the article "HOWTO: root.ear - tomcat 4.0.1 root application to deploy in jboss" in the installation & configuration forum here.
Hope this helps,

deploy a jar name ".war"
this works sure on jboss244+tomcat401...
looks like a joke but works 8)
I believe that 3.* and 2.4.5 also now allow you to specify the context in jboss-web.xml.
Later versions of Jetty will recognise Root (or root - not sure which).war as being intended for the '/' context. - I don't like this. I don't think it is spec compliant and there are other ways.
