DataSource in Struts Application

Hi All,

I am a newbie to Struts. To get hands on ,I successfully tried to folow the steps in the book "Mastering Jakarta Struts' and it did work fine.

My question is ,Am I using the connection pooling concept?
If so ,why does it show Generic DataSource ? Or is Generic DataSource the connection pooling
The details are:

But the Tomcat server displays while starting the service as:
[INFO] Generic DataSource -- createConnection()
[INFO] Generic DataSource -- createConnection()

Please verify

The DataSource interface doesn't tell you anything about its implementation -- whether it's reusing a single connection or keeps a pool of connections. You need to see how that particular DataSource has been configured in Tomcat's configuration files (start by reading this).

I agree. Here's the link:
