We don't have global jndi context, so the jndi names you can use are  
really determined by the ejb-jar.xml + openejb-jar.xml.  The name you  
specify in the geronimo-ra.xml for the admin object also has  
something to do with it :-)

It needs a resource-ref for the connection factory and a resource-env- 
ref for each of the InteractionSpec and ConnectionSpecs.  We've added  
a resource-env-link element that may be helpful to shorten the  
openejb-jar.xml entry you will need, but I think it only works within  
an ear, so you may well have to specify the target admin object fully.

AFAIK no one has tried using admin objects for anything but jms  
destinations before.  I think that when you look up an admin object  
in jndi you get a proxy to the actual object: this may cause problems  
with your objects.  Please let us know what happens, we may need to  
make some changes in exactly what we are returning.
