[javaee-spec users] [jsr342-experts] ConnectionFactoryDefinition

The Connector spec lead, with the support of the Connector EG, has
requested that we adopt a more fleshed out version of the
current ConnectorResourceDefinition metadata (currently described in
section EE.5.19.7 of the Java EE Platform specification).

The proposed changes are the rename of the metadata, from
ConnectorResourceDefinition (and connector-resource deployment
descriptor element) to ConnectionFactoryDefinition (and
connection-factory) and the addition of resourceAdapterName,
maxPoolSize, minPoolSize, and transactionSupport elements.
This brings our support for connector resource definition metadata more
in line with our other resource definition metadata support.
(You can view the details in the updated javadocs, which are available at )

Please let me know by the end of the week if for any reason you are
opposed to this change. I otherwise plan to update the spec.
The new annotation will be submitted with the Connector 1.7 MR.
