We are defintiely looking at ways to support improved Spring integration.

For now, a daemon service is not going to be able to access JNDI.  I
could provide some code for you for a bean that implements DataSource
and takes a property for the name of the Geronimo database pool to
connect to, and when called, passes everything through to the Geronimo
pool.  Then you could just include that bean in your Spring
configuration, and it would appear to the Spring application as if the
Geronimo DataSource was right there in Spring.  How does that sound?
(I don't know what would need to be done to integrate it with a
transaction manager, if that's a concern, but it would be a start.)
