Hi all !

Can anyone suggest a good connection pool that is easy to use/configure. I want to use it in a real heavy duty web application using servlets and jsps.

I'm not sure if this w'd be robust enough for your application
but there's a fully functional connection pool code available in Professional Java server programming book (Wrox) usder the connection pool title. You can probably use that
or check this's nearly the same:

If you are talking HEAVY DUTY web pages/site then I suggest invest the money in WebLogic or Websphere or something like that. Failing to have the money for this type of product then I also suggest Resin at
They have great connection pooling, load balancing and the servlet runner (engine) is incredibly fast.

SOURCE CODE should be SURROUNDED by "code" tags.
I agree. Here's the link:
