Hi Dan,

Happy to hear you like the tools  :) 

Lets see if I can answer your questions:

#1 it's all controlled via the datasource; in the built in examples you can look in the persistence.xml and it is using the built-in h2 db (AS7 has H2 instead of hsql db).
#2 the connection parameters are in your JBoss configuration (if running locally look for the standalone.xml in AS7 install, if running in OpenShift look for .openshift/config/standalone.xml
#3 admin the database, you can do some tricks to get h2 expose its webui but I would recommend using mysql or postgressql on openshift - just need to add that cartridge to your application
and change the persistence.xml to use the ava:jboss/datasources/PostgreSQLDS or java:jboss/datasources/MysqlDS datasource name.

Then you can install phpmyadmin to manage things.

 https://openshift.redhat.com/community/blogs/deploying-and-managing-postgresql-on-openshift https://openshift.redhat.com/community/blogs/deploying-and-managing-postgresql-on-openshift shows how to do it for postgresql

hope that helps a bit ?
