Chapter 1. Introduction to the Admin Console

The JBoss Enterprise Application Platform Admin Console is a browser-based management tool for the applications and resources of a JBoss Enterprise Application Platform instance. Read this guide for an overview of Admin Console features; descriptions of administrative tasks; and procedures to perform those tasks.
This release of the Admin Console provides the following administrative features:
  • Services Binding Manager configuration, management and control
  • Enterprise Application Platform instance information
  • Application configuration, management and control for:
    • Java EE Enterprise Applications (EARs)
    • Web Applications (WARs)
    • Resource Adapters (RARs)
    • Enterprise JavaBean 2 and 3 (EJBs)
  • Resource configuration, management and control for:
    • data sources
    • connection factories
    • JMS queues and topics (based on JBoss Messaging)
The Admin Console provided with Enterprise Application Platform retains the JMX and web consoles. It is included in the production, all, web and default profiles. It has also been tested with the standard server profile. Copy admin-console.war from JBOSS_HOME/server/production/deploy to the JBOSS_HOME/server/standard/deploy directory to use the Admin Console with the standard profile.


The Admin Console is not intended for use with the minimal configuration provided with the distribution. Custom configurations based on this configuration should not be used with the Admin Console, either.
