JBOSS is a J2EE application server. 

J2EE *may* be an appropriate foundation for a Web-based service if you 
have a team of Java developers at your disposal and if you've convinced 
yourself that your requirements are so complicated (baroque?) that you 
*need* a team of Java developers to implement them. 

And maybe someone who's already familiar with J2EE would use it for 
their personal projects. 

But if you're trying to simultaneously learn a Web development framework 
*and* use it to develop a Web service all by yourself, J2EE will drive 
you mad.  At least, that's what it did to me.
