Hi all, I haven't come to this forum for 2 years as I have not play programming for a period, now I come back.

In the past, when I use tomcat with MySQL, I get a connection pool java made by someone and use it with Servlet, now, I will use jsp/servlet with Database MSSQL, I wonder if I still need to use connection pool anymore? Or MSSQL can take care of the connections? Thanks

Ken,
You should still use a connection pool at the Java end. The connection to the database itself is expensive which the connection pool protects you from.
