Hi !
I'm looking for a good open source jdbc connection pool for using in my java application. If anyone knows where I can find one, please lemme know.

Is this a java application or a Web App? The reason I ask is because I don't think there is a need for a connection pool in a stand alone application. Each client gets there own connection anyway and the Pool would be supporting 1 person.
With a Web App, most App Servers will have their own Connection Pooling libraries.
So I guess the first thing is clarifying what you are doing with your app, and then we can help better.

This is a Google directory containing links to a number of Pooling mechanisms. Some of them are free.
The definition of 'good' is another thing entirely
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
