I'm very new to JBoss (and Tomcat and Java and all that good stuff). I have a question about the administrative interface for JBoss. I was wondering how much of the configuration of JBoss is controlled through the editing of xml/configuration files vs configuration through a gui interface. Things like deployment, undeployment, removing and adding services, etc. Being new to all of this I would find a gui interface more manageable rather than having to work through various configuration files. Is the interface fairly intuitive? Or is there going to be a big learning curve for someone new to the whole Java and JBoss world?

There were some previous posts about administrative consoles that you can use (though I personally haven't used them, so I can't vouch for them). But out of the box, most configuration is done through XML files and most deployment activities are done through the file system.

Us old timers tend to edit XML config files, but you can use Embedded Jopr, which is the new administration console for JBoss AS. It lets you configure data sources, messages destinations, and deploy and undeploy applications. We cover it in the book in appendix B.
