It's said that dbcp is now better than c3p0 since c3p0 is not maintained anymore. is this true?
can anybody give a simple full example of pooling? I think this is a better solution compared to standard DB access.

"it depends on what you need it for". Certainly there are cases where pooling is not required or even ideal.

My web app is going to do routine CRUD operations into DB (it's a business app). Is this not an ideal condition to use pooling? thanks
