I am accessing SQL Server database which is located on another PC , from a linux PC through a jsp page using a pure jdbc driver but still the connection is very slow.I am using the Tomcat Servlet Engine.Could anyone tell me how to use connection pooling with my application.
Waiting in anticipation.

Here is a link for a couple of different implementations of connection pooling. Basic idea is to have a servlet open on load of the web server, and that opens a certain number of connections to the database. Then have each of your servlets or jsp pages, grab one of those open connections and use that for database access. I have seen 3 or 4 different ways of doing this as I am trying to do one for a MySql database.
I am about to finish compiling the different version I have seen and taking out the peices I want for a site I am working. Once I finish it, I will be posting it at this site:
Hope that helps.
I agree. Here's the link:
