Do you have the right version of oracle-service- jboss3alpha needs one with "mbean-ref" rather than "depends" tags.
Also chech the object names in these tags are the same as the object names of the mbeans referenced. (especially the mbean domain, e.g. jboss.jca: vs. JCA:)
Read the log carefully to find out what is going wrong, check the port 8082 stuff to see what is started.
FWIW, I am having the same problem with a SQL Server DS. Autodeployer finds the service xml and seems to deploy it OK, except the name never gets bound in JNDI. WIth the Hypersonic DS, there is a line in the log that says explicitly that the datasource name was bound - not so with the MS one. In JNDIView, Hypersonic is there (DefaultDS), but SQL Srvr one isn't.
From the log:

It's fixed. The problem was an embedded in the mbean-ref for ResourceAdapterName. The name value within the element was:
"Minerva JDBCLocalTransaction ResourceAdapter"
"Minerva JDBC LocalTransaction ResourceAdapter"
The symptoms were that the service would be deployed, but no JNDI name would be bound for the data source. Fallout from copy/paste I suppose.
I'd made the mbean-ref/depends change, but not the JCA/jboss.jca one...
Thanks! It works now and if anyone's interested this was the correct oracle-service.xml to put in the deploy directory:
<mbean-ref name="ResourceAdapterName">JCA:service=RARDeployment,name=Minerva JDBC LocalTransaction ResourceAdapter</mbean-ref>
