Issue description
I am writing an application that needs to have several jobs/tasks executed in parallel by nodes. (I would think that this is a very common use case). I was finding that Jobs were executing sequentially on nodes. This was because I had made no setting to driver1.jppf.pool.size and thus it was using the default of 1. The documentation was not clear for me in the specimen client properties files, and I think it would be helpful to others to add remove some misleading text and add more detail.

1) I believe this setting does not work, so should be removed: line 166 of JPPF-4.0-application-template/config/jppf.properties
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
# Size of the connection pool for each discovered driver; default is 1         #
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
 
#jppf.pool.size = 1
2) at line 50 of JPPF-4.0-application-template/config/jppf.properties change from:
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
# Priority given to the driver                                                 #
# The client is always connected to the available driver(s) with the highest   #
# priority. If multiple drivers have the same priority, they will be used as a #
# pool and tasks will be evenly distributed among them.                        #
# default value is 0; uncomment to specify a different value                   #
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
 
driver1.jppf.priority = 10
#driver1.jppf.pool.size = 10
 
#driver2.jppf.server.host = localhost
#driver2.class.server.port = 11121
#driver2.jppf.priority = 10

"jppf.pool.size = 1" does work. It only applies when server discovery is enabled, I will clarify that in the config file. I will also clarify the use of priority and pool size for manual configuration.
