We have downloaded jboss-3.0.0 with tomcat-4.0.3 and through trial and error have discovered various nuances of how it works. Is there no documentation that specifically covers using these two products together, (rather than documents that cover the individual products)? For example, do you need to include rt.jar in the classpath in run.sh; should generic jars be placed in jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3/server/default/lib and application jars in the deploy area; are there CORBA specific setup requirements (we can't get CORBA to work - see separate topic), etc. It seems crazy to have to proceed in this way!
Please document what you have found and send it to SF patch tracker.
