Define requirements for the support of a connector connection factory resource definition through annotations (Section EE.5.19 of the Java EE 7 Platform Spec, EDR-2) and deployment-descriptor in application components.
Today the system administrator has to make Connection Factory resources that are required for an application. It would make it easier for a developer to get started if we allow an application to specify the definition and configuration of resources that it requires in its operational
The EE7 specification has already started work on this by defining two connector related resources
- Connector or Custom Resource Definition and
- Connector Administered Object Definition.
The attached proposal discusses issues with the too-generic connector resource definition and suggests that we remove the current section "EE.5.19.7 Connector or Custom
Resource Definition", and instead specify requirements for the support of a connector connection
factory resource definition.
