2.7. The Web Container - Tomcat

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform comes with Tomcat as the default web container. The embedded Tomcat service is found in the deploy/jboss-web.deployer directory. All the necessary jar files needed by Tomcat can be found in there, as well as a web.xml file which provides a default configuration set for web applications.
If you are already familiar with configuring Tomcat, have a look at the server.xml, which contains a subset of the standard Tomcat format configuration information. As it stands, this includes setting up the HTTP connector on the default port 8080, an AJP connector on port 8009 (can be used if you want to connect via a web server such as Apache) and an example of how to configure an SSL connector (commented out by default).
You shouldn’t need to modify any of this other than for advanced use. If you’ve used Tomcat before as a stand-alone server you should be aware that things are a bit different when using the embedded service. JBoss is in charge and you shouldn’t need to access the Tomcat directory at all. Web applications are deployed by putting them in the JBoss deploy directory and logging output from Tomcat can be found in the JBoss log directory.
