Ok, first probably not a good idea to have servlet.jar on your classpath.
Second, the tomcat/webapps directory won't give you any luck. If you've got an examples.war file, then drop it into jboss/server/default/deploy and if it is a valid war file it will deploy.
Anything your want to have work with jboss goes int he deploy directory.
I'm not really a programmer. I'm more of a pseudo-system admin person who was asked to do this for our test server while the real admin person is away.
I'm a little lost with this classpath stuff. What should go in the classpath?
If your not sure what to have on your classpath, then best to have nothing. Set JAVA_HOME to be your jdk directory, and that should pretty much do it. JBoss will work out it's classpath from what is deployed when you start it up.
The important thing is to make sure JBoss starts without errors, and then put your war file in JBoss's deploy directory. If it's a valid application it will deploy and be accessible.
I am a little puzzled over the placement of the warfile. JBoss handles the deployment for you so why not drop the warfile in /jboss/server/default/deploy ? The war should be stand-alone so you should not need any jars. If you've got third-party stuff toss it in /jboss/server/default/lib where it will load at boot time.
