To get started with dashboards, first download the BI Suite:

http://www.pentaho.org/download/latest.php

and then check out the Pentaho Dashboard Builder's Guide on the same page.

Is it possible to generate the dashboards only using sql queries instead of using JSP or XML. Is it compulsory to have JBOSS deployment for Pentaho BI suite..

Please respond ASAP as I have to prepare the dashboards from the existing database.

Thanks in advance.

You could modify existing dashboard SQL, but you'll eventually need to modify the JSP's and XML documents if you want to customize the dashboards. In the future there will be a Dashboard Designer Tool to make it easier for folks to build their own dashboards:

Not at all. The BI Platform will also run on Tomcat. We package JBoss with Pentaho for our Demo deployment. Check out the wiki document "Manual Deployment of Pentaho":
