App Server Connection Pooling VS User defined Connection Pooling Mechanism

Hello guys
I am trying to provide a Study to the Technical Manger why to get rid of our Connection Pooling Mechanism (Developed by us) and use App. Server vendor�s Connection Pooling Mechanism? My question would be like this, where I can find a Spec., White papers or something like it that describes how to Design Connection Pools. This will help me to figure out things missing in our internally developed Connection Pooling mechanism.

Thanks
Wasim Ayoubi

hi Wasim,

which appserver do you use (Tomcat, Websphere, etc).
They usually provide documentation and also wizards to define connection pools. Much easier then to write and maintain it yourself.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
