Connection pooling is concept to cache the connection rather creating Connection to database everytime you need it.SInce invoking a connection nuumber of times would be costly.In Connection pooling a connection is shared among multiple requests.

Connection pooling can increase performance dramatically by reusing connections rather than creating a new physical connection each time a connection is requested. The ability to use distributed transactions enables an application to do the heavy duty database work of large enterprises.

You can implement Connection pooling in your code also ,but almost every application provide connection pooling via data sources.
So instead of re-inventing the wheel you can use existing one.

Connection pooling in app server is always same regardless whatever application server.

Datasource also helps you migrate from one database to another without any code change provided you are using ANSI sql.

I agree. Here's the link:
