I am new here and new to the connection pooling and just trying to learn it. I had been successful in deploying the DataSource as guided http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/jndi-datasource-examples-howto.html and learnt a lot about it!! This is the Connection Pooling provided by the Tomcat 4.0 Application Server. My question is, is there any other method for connection pooling besides provided by the Application Server?? I have heard also heard that it is provided by the database vendors also. Can any one tell me all the methods with regards to Connection Pooling and suggest me any online tutorials. Also, please tell me which one approch is best in this regards.

Thank you Anandh,
Is it the only way to provide connection pooling mentioned in this tutorial?? As I am successfully using the connection pooling provided by the Tomcat Application Server what difference does this make at all?? Which approach is better one?? What are all the ways available to get pooled connections??
