Thanks for advice! The deployment is now alright for the war, no exception is thrown. Unfortunately connecting to the dataSource still doesn't work. When requesting the page index.jspx with the sql:query, this exception is thrown:

20:28:10,462 ERROR [[jsp]] Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Unable to get connection, DataSource invalid: "java.lang.NullPointerE
        at org.apache.taglibs.standard.tag.common.sql.QueryTagSupport.getConnection(QueryTagSupport.j
        at org.apache.taglibs.standard.tag.common.sql.QueryTagSupport.doStartTag(QueryTagSupport.java
        at org.apache.taglibs.standard.tag.el.sql.QueryTag.doStartTag(QueryTag.java:94)

However, if I place "OracleDS" directly into the jsp-Page:
<sql:query var="queryResults" dataSource="OracleDS">
	SELECT kat1, kat2,

it works. But only if there is a jboss-web.xml as well as you posted it. 

How can I get it to work without referencing for each jsp-Page the dataSource?
