DataSources/Pooling & Generic UserIds

Can someone point me in the right direction.

I'm trying to find more information about using connection pooling with DataSources and how unique and generic User Ids are hanlded.

Specifically, I've been told that specific user ids are not considered as part of the pooling process and are handled separately by the DataSource.

Is this true? And if so, does the unique User Id connection participate in the max DataSource (generic User Id) connection count?

I have a generic User defined for the DataSource, but need the connection to be User specific for updates - and I can't find any information about this topic.

Thanks in advance.

"Jeff R",

We're pleased to have you here with us in the JDBC forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
