Hmm, this didn't quite fix everything. The problem is that my servlets 
are being mapped to a context path composed as follows



Previously, my application.xml was using module:web:context-root entries 
to map them explicitly to a context path composed as



In most cases this does not matter. However, in the case of the cited 
example it matters because this particular path is visible to clients.

So, if I use application.xml or jboss-app.xml to specify the context 
path I cannot see my jars. If I omit these config files I cannot specify 
the context path. Is there a way round this dilemma?
