Okay, so, since I'm a bit of an XDoclet nut, still, I've done the 
following to add the resource ref to one of my SLSB beans:

   description="JavaMail Resource"

Which ends up adding the following lines to my ejb-jar.xml file:

         <resource-ref >
            <description><![CDATA[JavaMail Resource]]></description>

Which is all good. Now, which deployment plan do I add the resource ref 
to? I loked for gbean in the schemas and found that it can live in the 
geronimo-application.xml under my module definitions. Is that the 
correct place to put it in order to use it from within a SLSB?

Thanks Jeremy,
