P.S. I know I can use JDBCpool or otherwise build my own pooling mechanism, but I'd rather use JBoss' stuff for obvious reasons.
<Has anyone built a 100% web-driven configuration interface for JBoss?>
Unless I totally miss what you are asking for, the answer is a resounding YES. - It comes as part of the JMX part of JBoss. Just browse http://localhost:8082.
I understand that the modifications made on 8082 are not saved, so they are lost after the server reboots.
That is correct.

Not quite so. It depends on what type of MBean you are using. This can be achieved through ModelMBean usage (you can use XMBean class). There were discussions about that, but looks like ability to automatically store MBean properties is not yet implemented.
ahhh... does someone need that feature already?
send me some dough, and I'll pump up the priority :)
