The <injection-target> element is used if you want to inject an EntityManagerFactory into an EJB's bean class.

<persistence-unit-ref> <persistence-unit-ref-name>persistence/YourDB</persistence-unit-ref-name>
<persistence-unit-name>YourDB</persistence-unit-name>
<injection-target> <injection-target-class>org.andir.YourBean</
injection-target-class>
<injection-target-name>yourField</injection-target-name>
</injection-target>
</persistence-unit-ref>

The EntityManager is injected into the field named yourField or passed as a parameter to a setter method named setYourField( ) in YourBean class.

(I've modified the example a bit, because i didn't wanted to quote totally the book!)

It's also in EJB3 in Action, in Appendix D. But there's no example. It's not only for EntityManagerFactory. It's used to inject anything like a resource, an EJB, an entity manager...

You'll find an example in the core spec, to inject environment entries :
16.4.1.3 Declaration of Simple Environment Entries in the Deployment Descriptor
