The issue is that you are reading about capabilities in JBoss Web, yet you are running JBoss App Server (two completely different products). And while JBoss App Server uses an embedded version of JBoss Web for HTTP handling, that embedded version of JBoss Web does not contain all of the capabilities available in the standalone JBoss Web. Specifically, the management tools within JBoss Web would not work for JBoss App Server.

Thanks Peter, sorry about that.
So... Is there any way to embed the manager app into JBoss App Server?
The final objective is to auto-deploy an EAR file from Hudon using the Deploy Plugin (http://wiki.hudson-ci.org/display/HUDSON/Deploy+Plugin), but the plugin needs the manager url and credentiales to do the deploy.
I don't think that you can install the web manager into JBoss AS. As I indicated earlier, management of AS is very different from that of Web.
According to the plugin, it is based on Cargo. And looking at the Cargo docs, it looks like you use JMX and the MainDeployer MBean to do the deploy. See if this helps: http://cargo.codehaus.org/JBoss+Remote+Deployer
It would have been nice if the Hudson Deploy Plugin developer had provided some instructions on how to use the plugin.
