Yes, that's what I believe should be done.

Adding also Tomasz and Tom :).

I'm yet to asses the impact on documentation, by my feeling from my initial investigation was that I didn't found very many documents dealing with this.

Please check with the Teiid folks, as Teiid heavily uses this subsystem.

Am I correct in thinking that if the new parser is able to parse the old config version, no other migration work is needed?

Right, unless Stefano wants the parser for the new schema version to be forgiving and allow the old attribute.

So basically the issue here is that the xml attribute should be called 'name' instead of 'pool-name'?

Sounds like a minor Enhancement not a major Bug. If there's much in the way of docs out there that use pool-name then the cost of changing it (wrong docs) may outweigh any benefit.

    During resource creation the values are passed into service value objects

    Unless you think that this is not worth having new schema version (or the

    Also, AFAIK this change couldn't be backported to released product streams.
