 From your description I don't understand what you have done.  How  
did you create the connection pool?  What code needs this url? What  
is it used for?

Normally to create a connection pool/datasource in geronimo you  
create a plan to deploy a tranql jdbc wrapper rar for the driver you  
are using.  You can to this by hand but usually it is more convenient  
to use the admin console database wizard.  I believe there is no  
mssql-specific support so you would have to use the generic tranql  
rar which only supports local transactions, not xa.  For this rar you  
would use whatever jdbc url is appropriate for the jtds driver you  
are using, which presumably is explained it its documentation.

Hope this helps
