This is a common question to which there is no standard answer as far as I know. The problem is that the application may reside in a clustered environment made of several JVMs.

I agree with Lasse, but if you are in a enviroment with a single JVM, the Singleton Pattern is usefull to make DAO�s (Data Access Objects).
