I found the problem. I was mislead by listing 8-4 in the Quick Start Guide. I didnt know container-configurations need to depends on one of the configurations in standardjboss.xml.
There are several errors in this listing.
1) the tag <contaner-name> is used instead of <configuration-name>
2) the <enterprise-beans> tag must be before the <container-configuration> tag.
3) the <container-configuration> tag must have the depends attribute.
