If I have a connection pool bean which is declared in 'application' scope, how can I make it availabe to servlet? I can get the connection using this bean but I don't have an idea to past the bean object to the servlets. Thanks a lot.

You can import and instantiate the bean like you do in any other java class.

The fact is, the bean is already instantiated in other jsp page, it manage the connection pool, my goal is to get a connection from this pool bean inside my servlet so i don't have to recreate another pool. If i instantiate another pool bean in my servlet, will i have two bean objects that hold a set of connection separately?

I guess your bean must be having a static getConnection method.. if not create one and use that method to get the connection from the bean.

If I understand correctly the bean that you have created with Application scope should be automatically available to your servlet via the servletContext.

hope this correct
I agree. Here's the link:
