Can you point to the documentation you looked at?  We should fix it.

You do need a geronimo plan to deploy a connector module, the plan is  
not optional.  However, the plan can either be inside the rar as META- 
INF/geronimo-ra.xml or as an external plan.  I prefer the external  
plan as then you don't have to modify your connector to deploy it.

Please let us know if you have any further problems.
