A connector module (also called a resource adapter) enables J2EE applications to interact with enterprise information systems (EIS). A connector resource provides an application with a connection to an EIS. A connector connection pool is a group of reusable connections for a particular EIS.
Security maps enables the creation of a mapping between Java EE users and groups and EIS users and groups. Use the Admin Console to create, update, list, and delete security maps for connector connection pools.
In this context, users are referred to as principals. The enterprise information system (EIS) is any system that holds the information. It can be a mainframe, a messaging system, a database system, or an application.
