jboss seems to load my war file but gives a 404 page, and how can I fix this?

I am trying to evaluate if I can upgragde to jboss 7.1.1 I created the war file of my grails application:

grails war

then I put the war file inside the jboss standalone deployment directory. It seems to be picked up by the server since I see in the output:

11:43:19,026 INFO  [org.jboss.as.server] (DeploymentScanner-threads - 2) JBAS018559: Deployed "my-application-0.1.war"
11:43:19,483 INFO  [org.jboss.osgi.framework.internal.HostBundleState] (MSC service thread 1-4) Bundle started: my-application:0.1.0

However when I try to access 127.0.0.1/my-application I get a 404 error message. Any ideas about what is going on or how I can debug this issue?

Update: I just noticed this error in the jboss log:

12:33:48,499 ERROR [org.jboss.as] (MSC service thread 1-2) JBAS015875: JBoss AS 7.1.1.Final "Brontes" started (with errors) in 4214ms - Started 151 of 227 services (1 services failed or missing dependencies, 74 services are passive or on-demand)

I found another stackoverflow question on grails app not running with jboss which is very similar to what I am facing. I tried the suggested solution and edited the standalone.xml file. Now I am facing an actual error message, and in the browser I still get the 404 message. Here is the error from JBoss log:

You are using an old jboss-web.xml (with a different schema) with JBoss AS 7. The older schema had an element named "class-loading" which is not available with JBoss AS 7. Please refer the schema's [1] for the right format.
