Pressing on (as if my prior jndi question was answered, which it hasn't been yet)...

I need to add a JCA (now known as J2C) connector at the version 1.5
level to IBM Websphere 6.0. (It is the "filera" available at
www.sourceforge.net).

Below is a paste from the Websphere 6.0 documentation. I did not edit it because it has educational value. But the key statement is the
last sentence, which is: "Restriction: You can not add connector projects set at J2C v1.5 using the Deployment page of the WebSphere Enhanced EAR editor."
My question is, since Websphere 6.0 "supports" J2C 1.5 but
has the restriction that it offers no GUI based help to install same,
has anybody any experience installing J2C 1.5 connector in WSADS 6.0
and if so could they share with us how to do it? Tx. Below is
the full paste from the WSADS documention.

"Adding resource adapters and connection factories to a WebSphere Application Server v6.0

Resource adapters are sets of related classes that let an application access a resource such as data, or an application on a remote server, often called an Enterprise Information System (EIS). When working with J2EE Connector (J2C) resource adaptors, formerly known as J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA), you have to add an instance of the J2C connection factory and configure its properties.

The connection factory provides connections to the EIS on demand. You specify all the information needed by the resource adapter to connect to the particular instance of the EIS. You also specify the JNDI lookup name under which the new connection factory instance will be available to components. With this lookup name, the components can quickly make a connection to the EIS. You can add resource adapters and connection factories on WebSphere´┐Ż Enhanced EAR editor. The WebSphere Enhanced EAR editor is the Deployment page in the Application Deployment Descriptor editor.

Prerequisite steps:
Create an enterprise application and target the server to WebSphere Application Server v6.0.
Create or import a connector project set at J2C (formerly known as JCA) v1.0 in your workspace.
Restriction: You can not add connector projects set at J2C v1.5 using the Deployment page of the WebSphere Enhanced EAR editor...."
