I may be misinterpreting what you are asking, if so I apologize in  

A database pool is deployed separately from your app and includes the  
information about which database you are connecting to, the pool  
size, etc etc.  Then your app will include either a @Resource  
annotated field of type DataSource, in which case geronimo will  
inject the datasource for you,  or a resource-ref element in the  
deployment descriptor together with a jndi lookup of the datasource.

One way to set up a datasource is to use the datasource wizard in the  
admin console.  For MSSQL  you'll be using the generic tranql  
wrapper.  Do not include the user name and password in the url,  
instead  supply them as connector config parameters.

As you have noted the term "connector" is heavily overloaded: the  
database connectors have nothing to do with the web connectors such  
as the ajp connector you are using :-)

hope this helps
