After much struggle I finally got HTTPS to work when starting JBoss from the IDE. I don't know if this is the best way but it works for me and I hope it saves someone else the time and heartache I experienced with this.
In the JBoss debug dialog under the start tab:
Under the classpath tab:
Remove the JDK lib under the Boostrap Entries.
Under user entries add the java tools.jar and the JBoss run.jar
What this accomplishes is making the IDE startup similiar to the console startup which always works for me.
Thanks and good luck
