There is nothing setup at the ROOT context level. so you should be getting a "No context configured". Try http://localhost:8080/jmx-console
For a Test, I renamed the ROOT webapp under tomcat webapps directory to ROOT.war(Jboss needs this name if its an exploded archive) and copied the directory to deploy directory. I could now access http://localhost:8080/ROOT which would take me to the default TOmcat web page.
Excellent, it worked! I really appreciate the help.
