IMHO, don't depend on JBoss docs for general J2EE information. A developer needs to come to JBoss with J2EE knowledge already in hand. Get yourself a good book on this or find a good tutorial on the web. In particular, learn how to package an application:
Then from there, the JBoss docs are more than adequate to tell you how to startup JBoss and deploy a packaged application.
J2EE documentation won't help you here. You need to say ant setup
and it should work. I had the same question and someone kindly answered it.
I wish someone would volunteer to fix the quickstart documentation. Maybe I will.
Did you get the template example working? Try http://10.0.0.4:8080/web-client in your browser after you get a sucessful build.
