Hi, Could anyone give me some pointers as to the *best* way of connectign to my SQL database so as to enable my connections to be pooled. I can already make a connection to the DB but I know that every call just creates a connection (Not so good!) I have thought about moving my DB Code to an Entity EJB, but there is a huge overhead with EJB's in terms of speed of creation. Any Connection pooling thoughts? Dominic
"Dominic", The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please re-register and select a new name which meets the requirements. Thanks. Dave
