I have the same problem. Only difference is, I have not created a WAR file. But I have deployed the servlets in the right way.
Why don't u send me your server.xml file and the web.xml file. I will see if we can get any insight.
hmmm, I did not make any changes to my server.xml. Mayby that is my problem. What should include there?
I figured out my problem. I needed to include a jboss-web.xml file and that seems to solve the issue. my jboss-web.xml had nothing in it!
