Connection Pooling in Tomcat

Hi, i have an application that accesses a sql database using tomcat. However despite first ensuring all connections are closed, and then using ConnectionPooling to ensure that all connections are closed it seems that connections still exist to my database even though they should all be closed down.
I have since found out that it might be Tomcat and may involve connection pooling on Tomcat to ensure that connections are closed when not being used, i have looked around but not found any really good info on altering Tomcat, an application i haven't spent much time on.
Does this sound right and can anyone help me sort this out
