You can use either twiddle:

$ twiddle.sh query "jboss.jca:service=DataSourceBinding,*"

or the JMX Api:

Context ctx = new InitialContext();

MBeanServerConnection mconn = (MBeanServerConnection)ctx.lookup("jmx/invoker/RMIAdaptor");

ObjectName name = new ObjectName("jboss.jca:service=DataSourceBinding,*");

Set s = mconn.queryMBeans(name, null);

You can get the list of the available datasources by navigating into the datasource subsystem using the CLI:

[standalone@localhost:9999 /] /subsystem=datasources:read-resource
    "outcome" => "success",
    "result" => {
        "xa-data-source" => undefined,
        "data-source" => {
            "ExampleDS" => undefined,
            "MySQLPool" => undefined
        "jdbc-driver" => {
            "h2" => undefined,
            "mysql" => undefined

The same pattern applies for the newer WildFly application server.
