Every ssl setup step may have problems, from your question it is a little difficult to identify what is wrong.
I understand you only have problem with the config stuff, but may be you did not find where to make the config, or your are having an error trying to configure, or ..........
Please have a look a "Enabling SSl on JBoss" http://www.theserverside.com/discussions/thread.tss?thread_id=22243;
even thou is almost a year old it works fine on jboss-3.2.5 with tomcat5.0
