If you want to connect to your JBoss Connection Pool from a remote client ( that is a client that is not deployed on JBoss) you need to tell JBoss NOT to bind the Datasource under the "java:/"
As a matter of fact this restricts the lookup to the same VM as the JBoss server.

Simply use tag <use-java-context>false</use-java-context> in your -ds.xml file

This is a sample Datasource file for mysql configured to accept remote client access
