Just copy the war into the default server deploy directory even if the server is running, it should work.
I have a problem configuring the server itself so it s running as a daemon and also i want to change the default port to port 80.
It s true there is no documentation about how to configure the server. It seems to use the jboss-service.xml file .. but reading it doesnt help.
I am more familiar to Tomcat and Jetty so i ll wait a bit to get those info published at http://www.jboss.com/products/jbossweb
Or if you have any clue, it would be great if you can post them.
I just found out that the ports can be configured there :
[q]What I don't see is how it it is configured to handle static content[/q]
I guess all the requests that are not mapped to a servlet are handled automatically by the apache module.
