Chapter 4. Resources

Anything managed by the Admin Console is a resource. This includes Applications, Services, and Datasources. The Admin Console separates Applications out from other managed resources. The remaining resources are accessible by navigating to the 'Resources' menu item in the Admin Console. They are categorized as JBoss Messaging, JBoss Web, Scripts, Connection Factories, and Datasources.

Important

Resources deployed and modified using the Admin Console should continue to be administered using the Admin Console, as changes are not reflected in the original configuration file for the resource. Manual editing of configuration files and changes made using the Admin Console are not compatible.
