Its given in the core specs(pg 425),that,


The value of the res-sharing-scope element
is Shareable or Unshareable. If the res-sharing-scope element is not specified, connections
are assumed to be shareable.
A resource manager connection factory reference is scoped to the enterprise bean whose declaration
contains the resource-ref element.


If the resource manager is scoped to the bean in which it is declared, then how can it be shared?

A resource manager connection factory reference may be scoped to a component but multiple components can reference the same connection factory - i.e. you define a single datasource in your app server then reference it from multiple components.

When a connection is marked as sharable it can be reused by multiple components executing in the same transaction. For example EJB1 starts a transaction, obtains a JDBC connection, uses it, and then invokes a method on EJB2. EJB2 also uses a JBDC connection with same connection properties as the one used EJB1. If the connection is shareable EJB2 will reuse the same connection, as opposed to creating a new one.

Check out the JCA spec if this still isn't clear.
