Will this book be concentrating solely on SQl with Java(JDBC) or it is in general?

I've gone through many books and each mentions different about implementation of connection pooling. will this book explain how exactly this can be implemented in tomcat.

From what I've read in Lynn's responses, the book is focused on SQL, not JDBC and certainly not something as specific as setting up container-managed connection pooling in Tomcat. That, however, is a topic that has been discussed often in our Tomcat forum. Search through that forum and you should find lots of good info.

This book is still very useful because We would be dealing with SQLs while using JDBC api to interact with any database.
