Installing Jasper Report server from WAR file distribution?

If you don't want to use Windows or Linux installer then you can Install JasperReport server from WAR file distribution.

Download the following files:- 
    1 The WAR file distribution comes in file named
            in the compressed ZIP format. Download the WAR distribution file from .

    2. Download the JDBC driver, mysql-connector-java-5.1.18-bin.jar
After downloading WAR file download Apache Tomcat exe file and install on your system.
There are two way to install JasperReport server by manually or auto, but we are installing it manually.
Before start installing you need to set JAVA_HOME environment variable on your system.

           JAVA_HOME="path of jdk folder"
                                    e.g: JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\jdk1.7.0_01

To install the WAR file distribution using the manual buildomatic steps:-

1- If you’re using MySQL, place a MySQL JDBC driver in

2- Start database (MySQL) server.
3- Stop your Application server(Apache tomcat).
4- Copy file from <js-install>/buildomatic/sample_conf and paste it to
       <js-install>/buildomatic and rename it to
5- Edit file and change the setting of database server and application server
   according to your system.
6- Open a Command Prompt as Administrator on Windows and go to buildomatic directory of JasperReport server and run these commands:-

      a:-  js-ant create-js-db                     (Creates the JasperReports Server repository database)
      b:-  js-ant create-sugarcrm-db         (Optional) Creates the sample databases.
            js-ant create-foodmart-db
      c:-  js-ant load-sugarcrm-db            (Optional) Loads sample data into the sample databases.
            js-ant load-foodmart-db
            js-ant update-foodmart-db
      d:-  js-ant init-js-db-ce                      
            js-ant import-minimal-ce          (Initializes the jasperserver database, loads core
                                                                application data. Running js-ant import-minimal-ce is
                                                                mandatory. The server cannot function without this data)

      e:-  js-ant import-sample-data-ce      (Optional) Loads the demos that use the sample data.
      f:-  js-ant deploy-webapp-ce              Configures and deploys the WAR file to Tomcat

      Start the application serve.

Installing jasperserver 6.3 community edition on wildfly 9.0.2.
Can access wildfly (welcome to wildfly) on localhost:8090 (as I changed the offset by 10) and management console on localhost:10000.
However, I am not able to view my jasperserver. localhost:8090/jasperserver gives a 404 NOT FOUND error.
The installation gives a successful build also.
Any help?
I have followed the install guide for 6.3 community edition.
Linux 16.04 lts
wildfly 9.0.2
