compiling for Jboss

Hi there

I'm working for my own Start-Up on an Portal for my Enterprise. I don't know, I've begun with Liferay but currently I'm also looking on Apache Jetspeed. But the Application-Server will be Jboss 5.1. Solid like a rock and very well good documented. And I think the best maintained solution on FreeBSD my prefered Server-OS

So at all, some stuff on Liferay 6 doesn't fits my taste. Maybe Alfresco will do some jobs better on my Portal.

On http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_SVN_Development_Environment I've read the instructions for Jboss

And currently I'm a little bit confused. The buildscripts for ANT hasn't the in the WIKI documented targets for Jboss.

I get it with the SVN 26807 (alfresco-community-3.4.d) and also with the newest unstable HEAD.

So will be the support for Jboss removed in the future? Attlasian has did it and that's the reason why we doesn't deploy Confluence on our environments anymore.

Edit: some lines for Jboss are commented out. So why?
