Pooling means using some cache entries for the purpose of reusing. In particular for the connection pooling, it stores the connection (eg: database connection) in a 'pool' which is cached. With that case, we can reuse the same connection later without reconnecting.

Creating or opening the connection for each request is a costliest operation.Costliest in means of consuming the time for every request is a serious overcome this creating the set of connections(pool of connections) at server startup time and make them availble to the application is a good solution
