Subject Re: How can one servlet (ActionServlet) effect another servlet (AxisServlet)...?

Apparently JBoss' CATALINA container is hardbound to that port and the only 
solution is to redirect to another port within jboss-service.xml
in tomcat-5.5.sar

No, actually you can't. To be specific, there is a service called something 
like tomcat-5.5.sar. This SAR (Service ARchive) contains the Catalina engine 
from Tomcat 5.5, but not the actual Tomcat server itself. JBoss effectively 
does the same thing as Tomcat when executing code in the Web Container, 
because it's just calling the Catalina functions. It can't stand alone 
though, because the bootstrap code is missing, and you can't simply point 
JBoss at a different Tomcat installation because a SAR is a slightly 
different representation of the same code. You can, however, take the WAR 
from an existing Tomcat installation and hot-deploy it to JBoss provided 
there's no version issues.

To address the OP, you would have to change the port number that JBoss uses 
for the Web Container by editing the jboss-service.xml file in the 
tomcat-5.5.sar directory.
