I wonder if it's possible to access jboss web server which I can access in virtual box windows 7 as guest using localhost:8080 on mac as host?

The current network is NAT. Do I need to change it?

You can use NAT. Just use port forwarding under the settings for the VM.

As v1k1ng said, you can use NAT, but make sure that instead of accessing the jboss web server through the address localhost:8080, that you use the IP of the guest instead to access it.

You can get the IP of the guest by opening cmd in the guest OS and typing in ipconfig /all.
