This is the XML DTD for the Connector 1.0 deployment descriptor.
All Connector 1.0 deployment descriptors must include a DOCTYPE
of the following form:

  <!DOCTYPE connector PUBLIC
	"-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Connector 1.0//EN"


The following conventions apply to all J2EE deployment descriptor
elements unless indicated otherwise.

- In elements that contain PCDATA, leading and trailing whitespace
  in the data may be ignored.

- In elements whose value is an "enumerated type", the value is
  case sensitive.

- In elements that specify a pathname to a file within the same
  JAR file, relative filenames (i.e., those not starting with "/")
  are considered relative to the root of the JAR file's namespace.
  Absolute filenames (i.e., those starting with "/") also specify
  names in the root of the JAR file's namespace.  In general, relative
  names are preferred.  The exception is .war files where absolute
  names are preferred for consistency with the servlet API.

The connector element is the root element of the deployment descriptor
for the resource adapter. This element includes general information - vendor
name, version, specification version supported, icon -  about the
resource adapter module. It also includes information specific to the
implementation of the resource adapter library as specified through
the element resourceadapter.
<!ELEMENT connector (display-name?, description?, icon?, vendor-name,
spec-version, eis-type, version, license?, resourceadapter)>

The element authentication-mechanism specifies an authentication mechanism
supported by the resource adapter. Note that this support is for
the resource adapter and not for the underlying EIS instance. The
optional description specifies any resource adapter specific requirement
for the support of security contract and authentication mechanism.

Note that BasicPassword mechanism type should support the interface.
The Kerbv5 mechanism type should support the interface.

Used in: resourceadapter
<!ELEMENT authentication-mechanism (
description?, authentication-mechanism-type, credential-interface)>

The element authentication-mechanism-type specifies type of an authentication

The example values are:

Any additional security mechanisms are outside the scope of the
Connector architecture specification.

Used in: authentication-mechanism
<!ELEMENT authentication-mechanism-type (#PCDATA)>

The element config-property contains a declaration of a single
configuration property for a ManagedConnectionFactory instance.

Each ManagedConnectionFactory instance creates connections to a
specific EIS instance based on the properties configured on the
ManagedConnectionFactory instance. The configurable properties are
specified only once in the deployment descriptor, even though a
resource adapter can be used to configure multiple ManagedConnnection-
Factory instances (that create connections to different instances of
the same EIS).

The declaration consists of an optional description, name, type
and an optional value of the configuration property. If the resource
adapter provider does not specify a value than the deployer is
responsible for providing a valid value for a configuration property.

Any bounds or well-defined values of properties should be described
in the description element.

Used in: resourceadapter
<!ELEMENT config-property (description?, config-property-name,
config-property-type, config-property-value?)>

The element config-property-name contains the name of a configuration

The connector architecture defines a set of well-defined properties
all of type java.lang.String. These are as follows:

A resource adapter provider can extend this property set to include
properties specific to the resource adapter and its underlying EIS.

Used in: config-property

Example: <config-property-name>ServerName</config-property-name>
<!ELEMENT config-property-name (#PCDATA)>

The element config-property-type contains the fully qualified Java
type of a configuration property as required by ManagedConnection-
Factory instance.

The following are the legal values of config-property-type:
   java.lang.Boolean, java.lang.String, java.lang.Integer,
   java.lang.Double, java.lang.Byte, java.lang.Short,
   java.lang.Long, java.lang.Float, java.lang.Character

The element connectionfactory-interface specifies the fully-qualified
name of the ConnectionFactory interface supported by the resource

Used in: resourceadapter

Example: <connectionfactory-interface>com.wombat.ConnectionFactory
<!ELEMENT connectionfactory-interface (#PCDATA)>

The element credential-interface specifies the interface that the
resource adapter implementation supports for the representation
of the credentials. This element should be used by application server
to find out the Credential interface it should use as part of the
security contract.

The possible values are:

Used in: authentication-mechanism
<!ELEMENT credential-interface (#PCDATA)>

The description element is used to provide text describing the parent
element.  The description element should include any information that
the resource adapter rar file producer wants to provide to the consumer of
the resource adapter rar file (i.e., to the Deployer). Typically, the tools
used by the resource adapter rar file consumer will display the description
when processing the parent element that contains the description.

Used in: authentication-mechanism, config-property, connector, license,
<!ELEMENT description (#PCDATA)>

The display-name element contains a short name that is intended to be
displayed by tools.  The display name need not be unique.

Used in: connector


<display-name>Employee Self Service</display-name>
<!ELEMENT display-name (#PCDATA)>

The element eis-type contains information about the type of the
EIS. For example, the type of an EIS can be product name of EIS
independent of any version info.

This helps in identifying EIS instances that can be used with
this resource adapter.

The icon element contains small-icon and large-icon elements that
specify the file names for small and a large GIF or JPEG icon images
used to represent the parent element in a GUI tool.

containing a large (32 x 32) icon image. The file
name is a relative path within the resource adapter's
rar file.

adapter module. This element specifies whether a license is required
to deploy and use this resource adapter, and an optional description
of the licensing terms (examples: duration of license, number of
connection restrictions).

to deploy and use the resource adapter. This element must be one of
the following:

name of the Java class that implements the javax.resource.spi.Managed-
ConnectionFactory interface. This Java class is provided as part of
resource adapter's implementation of connector architecture specified

<!ELEMENT managedconnectionfactory-class (#PCDATA)>

The element reauthentication-support specifies whether the resource
adapter implementation supports re-authentication of existing Managed-
Connection instance. Note that this information is for the resource
adapter implementation and not for the underlying EIS instance.

This element must be one of the following:
Used in: resourceadapter
<!ELEMENT reauthentication-support (#PCDATA)>

The element resourceadapter specifies information about the resource
adapter. The information includes fully-qualified names of
class/interfaces required as part of the connector architecture
specified contracts, level of transaction support provided,
configurable properties for ManagedConnectionFactory instances,
one or more authentication mechanisms supported and additional
required security permissions.

If there is no authentication-mechanism specified as part of
resource adapter element then the resource adapter does not
support any standard security authentication mechanisms as part
of security contract. The application server ignores the security
part of the system contracts in this case.

Used in: connector
<!ELEMENT resourceadapter (
managedconnectionfactory-class, connectionfactory-interface,
connectionfactory-impl-class, connection-interface,
connection-impl-class, transaction-support, config-property*,

that are different from those required by the default permission set
as specified in the connector specification. The optional description
can mention specific reason that resource adapter requires a given
security permission.

The ID mechanism is to allow tools that produce additional deployment
information (i.e., information beyond the standard deployment
descriptor information) to store the non-standard information in a
separate file, and easily refer from these tool-specific files to the
information in the standard deployment descriptor.

Tools are not allowed to add the non-standard information into the
standard deployment descriptor.
