Except I think you might need something more in the web.xml for Tomcat. And what is the name of the WAR file?
And the minimal config doesn't have a servlet container on which to deploy a WAR - at least not on JBoss 3.2.2.
I will retry it in the default server mode as I am using JBoss 3.2.2 - perhaps that will let the war be deployed... didn't even cross my mind that might be the case. Many thanks.
