Hi,
Does Tomcat provide database connection pooling.
If so can someone post me a link to an example of how to set it up.
Does it use data sources and JNDI to obtain a reference to the connection pool?
Cheers,
Steve

Tomcat doesn't provide database anything.
However, it's not such a big deal to setup connection pools using JDBC and do your own.
Struts DOES provide some basic (and extensible) support for connection pooling. It's one of the topics covered in the sample app for this article:
http://www.fawcette.com/javapro/2002_04/magazine/features/tholloway/
The sample app itself is running on a Tomcat server
at http://www.mousetech.com/strutsdemo/index.jsp and is annotated so you can see the components at work (hint: look at the struts-config.xml files and the "xxxxForm.java" files.

Well, in fact, Tomcat does provide connection pooling.
