Managed Servers in JBoss

I need to port an existing application from Weblogic 6.1 to JBoss 3.2.2
The problem is that it is using Managed Servers of Weblogic. Do we have an equivalent in JBoss ? Can we run Multiple JBoss Servers with one server behaving as Admin Server for others ?

JBoss doesn't seem to have the concept of an admin server -- at least not in the 3.x releases. You can cluster the servers for high availability and session replication but each server is a peer just like any other.
If you take a look at the jmx-console/cluster application that is deployed by default (in the clustered configuration) you'll see it auto-discovers all nodes in the cluster. So, you could potentially bring up a cluster with three nodes and only send traffic to two of them, keeping the third online to act like an admin server.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
