Interesting indeed.  Like global ejb names, but worse.

Right, as you point out the spec says "the format of these names and  
the ability to specify the names are product specific" which makes it  
unavoidably container specific.  As far as I can see everyone has  
taken their own approach (Geronimo uses the AbstractName of the db  
pool gbean, JBoss uses the Jboss-specific jndi name of the datasource,  
etc. etc).  Not sure what we can do about that other than do our best  
to support the situations people bring to us.
