Support use the @Resource(name="java:global/env/abc") for environment entry injection

                 Key: GERONIMO-6022
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: naming
    Affects Versions: 3.0
            Reporter: Ivan
            Assignee: Ivan
             Fix For: 3.0

It looks to me that it is nature to use lookup attribute, not the name attribute, but it will
be better that we could inject env-entry with this style.

I went through the related parts in the Java EE 6 spec, and do not find some explicit descriptions
for this, only found the words below. From it, it seems that it is valid to define environment
entry in those sharable namespace, I could see many ways for using this, e.g. in an ear package,
which contains some wars, ejbs etc.
a. Declare an entry like java:global/env/abc in one war package, and all other components
could use @Resource(name="java:global/env/abc") to inject values.
b. More than one components declare the entry java:global/env/abc with the same values, it
is OK, but fails while the values are different.
c. Declare the entry in the application.xml, other modules just use it.

In current EnvironmentEntryBuilder, it somewhat supports the behaviors above. But it totally
depends on the naming build order of those sub components, if one component just uses the
value is found first, it will be ignored due to no target value is found. 
---> EE 5.2.2
If multiple application components declare an environment entry in one of the 
shared namespaces, all attributes of that entry must be identical in each 
declaration.  For example, if multiple components declare a resource reference 
with the same java:app name, the authentication and shareable attributes must 
be identical.
If all attributes of each declaration of a shared environment entry are not 
identical, this must be reported as a deployment error to the Deployer.  The 
deployment tool may allow the Deployer to correct the error and continue 
By default, environment entries declared by application components are 
created in the java:comp/env namespace.  Environment entries may be declared 
in any one of the defined namespaces by explicitly including the namespace prefix 
before the name.  It is recommended but not required that environment entries be 
created in the env subcontext of the corresponding naming context.  For example, 
entries shared within a module should be declared in the java:module/env 
context.  Note that names that are not under the env subcontext may conflict with 
the current or future versions of this specification, with server-defined names, 
such as the names of applications or modules, or with server-defined resources.  
Names in the env subcontexts of any of the namespaces must only be created by 
an explicit declaration in an application or by an explicit action by an 
administrator; the application server must not predefine any names in the env 
subcontext of any of the namespaces, or in any subcontext of any such env
