If you open the file in winzip and look at the list of files you will not see the server/default/lib directory because winzip lists files and since there is no file in lib, that directory is not listed.

If you select all of the files in winzip and say extract, you will not get the lib directory. Why? Because there is no file in that directory and thus you could not have selected any file, hence no directory.

However, if you right-click the zip file and choose Winzip > Extract To Here, you will get the server/default/lib directory. Also, in winzip, if you do not select any files and then do File >  Extract, you will get the lib directory. So it all depends on how you do the extraction. Essentially, you want to have selected the "All files/folders in archive" option on the Extract dialog box.

Perhaps the JBoss AS team should consider placing a "this_dir_empty.txt" file into the server/default/lib directory so that this issue will not come up in the future.
