Good grief yes!  I've dabbled in JBoss in on-again, off-again fashion, and only recently have started getting serious about using it.

The documentation is published under the name of JBoss5, but it's seriously deficient.  I'm currently struggling with what should be the simple task of setting the server up to use MySql 5.  The documentation instructs me to find a file from docs/examples/jms, mysql-jdbc2-service.xml.  This file doesn't exist.  I've tried hacking it a couple of different ways, from modifying the existing hs variant of the file, to trying to find an old copy of this file from a previous release.  It ain't working.

I'm a fairly busy guy.  I hate having to mess with things that are supposed to be easy.  I don't really have time to mess with it.  It makes me cringe to think of what I'll have to deal with once I'm past these "easy" bits and on to more meat-and-potatoes type difficulty.

Are the new docs for JBoss 5 in development?  I'd love to see what's there, even in half-baked state.

Or should I just go ahead, drop everything and start hacking glassfish?
