I picked up a copy of the book JBoss at Work, A Practical Guide by Tom Marrs and Scott Davis, published by O'Reilly. This books seems to cover all of the areas that you mentioned. I used the chapter on web services to build a small EJB application with a web service front end, using XDoclets to specify EJB and web services information.
Thanks Peter. Will check out the book.
Meanwhile, Is there an JBoss ant task which is equivalent to WLDeploy (in WebLogic)?
Since deploying to JBoss is simply a matter of copying the war/ear file (or directory) to, for example, server/default/deploy, I use the 'copy' task.
