I read connections to database threadsafe hence we can create connections in init() to reuse in doGet() and doPost() methods.I have not understood what author meant. Any ideas, suggestions, sample code, resources, links highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Creating connections in this manner is not recommended. Use a connection pool.
