Is it possible to use connection pooling for DB2ConnectionPoolDataSource outside of a server?
I am trying to use DB2ConnectionPoolDataSource in IBM universal driver(type 4) through a standalone application.
I am not sure whether i can use it in an a standalone app or i need to have an application server to manage pooling.
I have no real preference. I use the commons implementation, because it works with drivers that do not support pooling.
What I would not do, is rely on DB2 (or Oracle, or ...) implementation. I would not worry to use it's built in pooling capabilities, but would take care that my code does not know (or know as little as possible) about it.

that's what i thought too...
it would be better to opt for a stable tool like dbcp to handle it for my application.
Thanks a lot for replying.
