Nothing properly packaged in rpm form in a yum repo (what John asked for).
That's useless for people who don't want to hand-deploy their software
(and a big reason why java in general never took of under Linux)

John: you can't package JBoss properly if you don't package a JVM, Fedora
will only package FLOSS code and the consensus seems to be it's more
efficient to wait for the actual Java 7 SUN GPL release than make gcj
feature-complete enough for JBoss. If no JBoss packages appear in Fedora
after this JVM release, please yell.

In the meanwhile you can try the jpackage JBoss packaging.
