Connection Pooling.

Hi All,

To establish a new connection it takes time so, instead of that we will use connection pooling. But in banking applications why they will go for single connection instead of pooling? Is there any security reasons to avoid pooling.

Who said banking applications avoid pooling? I've worked on many banking applications and have always employed pooling.

Hi Bibeault,

Sorry for my question in an interview this question was raised. Thanks for clarification. We need to take any more security checks if we go for this?

Always let us know when it's an interview question.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
