Doc/tutorial/book on JBOSS

Are there any good tutorials/books on JBOSS (other than the online doc which seemed too heavy!) for a beginner? If not, is the online doc the best thing to follow? What I need to do is use JBOSS as an application server but I think the online doc also deals with the ins and outs of JBOSS implementation.
Please help! TIA

JBoss documentation is notoriously bad (even the stuff you pay for). They do tend to rattle on about their JMX kernel architecture quite a bit. The cynic in me thinks this is because JBoss make all their money from support and consulting...

Your best bet with JBoss is to use the examples they include. I also found that just looking at the source code now and again clears up a few uncertainties.
