Resource Adapter: asking container to throw connections whenever IOError occurs?

Hi,

I'm writing a Resource Adapter (Connector), and would like to rely on my container (currently, Websphere or Jboss) to pool my connections.
However, whenever there's a communication error (IOException), i'd like to report it back to the container, and ask it to throw the connection away from the pool and not re-use it.... can this be done ?

In detail:
I'm writing a Resource Adapter, providing customized connections to our legacy system.
I'm hoping the container (its ConnectionManager) will manage the pool for me.

Now, my connections may sometimes throw IOException, indicating errors in the communication channel. I can easily arrange it so that my Connection (and ManagedConnection) knows about every such error, and can report it to whoever needs to know...
But how exactly do I report it back to the container/ConnectionMananger ? And how do I tell it to remove the erronous connection from the pool ?

Thanx
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
