I have a question.I use datasource.getConnection() to get the connection as
My question is does getConnection() have to be synchronized? Won't the
datasource manage the connections in the pool.

public Connection static synchronized getConnection(){
Connection conn = null;
DataSource dataSource = serviceLocator.getInstance().getDataSource
conn = dataSource.getConnection();
catch(Exception ex)
//do something here
return conn;

No the calls to getConnection() don't have to be synchronized. The datasource/driver handles that for you.
