I am working on a JSP-Project and sometimes I have to fetch or update the Database with JDBC. (I thought about using Hibernate but it would make more afford to use Hibernate for just some easy updates...).
So I bind my basic connection as a bean to the session:
Still I have some doubts whether I am doing everything in the right way (using Pooled Connections, Sessions...). Everything works fine so far, but I'm still unsure.
In the JSP-Files I use this connection in that way. Is there a possibility to check if the connection is really pooled?
Even though, jpkrohling says it is necessary to use a persistence.xml, I'd say, it's not. For those, who have the same struggles as I had here's my new hibernate.cfg.xml. Everything works fine. Many thanks to Ulf for sharing his knowledge.
