Hi Karl,
JDBC 3.0 provides for connection pooling. It introduces the concept of <logical connection> which is a selected connection from the pool of <physical connections>.
It comes with the new package javax.sql that defines, among other classes, javax.sql.PooledConnection, and javax.sql.ConnectionPoolDataSource.
I have already used these independently of any EJBs container or any J2EE Application Server.
Good Luck
