if you don't want to use axis just delete the jboss-net.sar file from your deploy directory.
Thanks for the reply, but that doesn't really answer my question. You are assuming I don't want to use axis. I am trying out all things with JBoss and I find it amazing that somewhere, or at least I believe this, there is a hardcoded place that the fake.war is trying to be loaded. On my system at work, trying to load this file causes a 60 second pause.
The reason I think it is hardcoded to try and load this file is because doing a search for "fake.war jboss" (without the quotes) on Google turns up 2 commits to CVS that show it in the code. What does JBoss do this?
