DataSource and Connection Pooling

Hello, everybody
I have a webapp that uses several JavaBeans, one on which is a DBConnection bean and is called from other beans to execute queries, updates, etc.
I tried to register a DataSource on Tomcat 4 and call it from the bean, but it looks like since its not going from jsp, the DataSource is outside the Context. I am aware that there is a way to do it thru servlets, but what if i need to do some server-side processing only.
Anyway, my question is:"has anybody successfully set up a bean that does a connection thru DataSource pooling and is called from other classes on the server?"
Thanks in advance
