Where is the servlet jar file on JBoss 5.0.1?

Hi All: I’m trying to set up my build file to be run for deployment on JBossAS 5.0.1, and I need to find the servlet jar file that I should use for the build..

All of the web pages I’ve looked at seem to indicate that the file is javax.servlet.jar and it should be in the C:\< install dir >\server\default\lib directory. I’m looking in this (and every other directory I can think of), but this file cannot be found.

I’m either going crazy, have a wonky jboss install, or have bad info. Would someone be able to help me out?

    in Jboss 6.2 find the required jar on the path:

    The file you are looking for is JBOSS_HOME/common/lib/servlet-api.jar.

    From the JBossAS 5.0.0 release notes: “Another notable change is that the majority of the libraries common to the different configurations have moved
    to a new shared location, JBOSS_HOME/common/lib/. This is so we avoid having multiple copies of the same libraries in
    the distribution.”

    Hope this helps!
