Creating and deploying a web application

As you can see, the application server provides a straightforward way to configure the Web container. In order to run a web application, you need to learn how to organize its specific configuration files and which libraries are needed to render the web application.

JBoss AS 7 is a Java EE 6-compatible application server and thus, it can be used to deploy a wide range of web applications. Today, one of the most common approaches to building your application is using the Java Server Faces technology, which is an evolution of JSP technology.

Currently, JBoss AS 7 supports the JSF release 2.1 using the Mojarra implementation, although there are plans for supporting MyFaces implementation too.
