Hi All,
I am newbie to employ Connection Pool in JDBC.
Googled a lot about it but got nothing other than some buzzwords like Datasource, ConnectionPoolDataSource. Reading number of webblogs on this confused me.
Can anybody here give a step by step guide to help make use of connectionPool in java ?

Appreaciating quick replies ..
Thanks in advance.

The first thing to decide is which connection pool. Are you using a server that provides one? If not ware you using dbcp (an open source connection pool) or something else?
