About Connector Connection Pools

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 J2EE users and groups and EIS users and groups. Use the Admin Console to create, update, list, and delete security maps for connector connection pools.

Note –

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.
