Datasource JNDI

My web application has the following flow from the servlet layer:

Servlet <--> Controller Beans <--> Application Beans <--> JDBC layer <--> DB

I am bundling all components in jar file and deploying it as single web
application. Currently, I am not using any EJB for any of the above components implementation.

Now I have a clarification. In above flow, can the Datasource JNDI configured in Apache Tomcat Server be used by JDBC Layer ? Will this approach work?

Or will I have to acquire Connection object from Datasource at Servlet Layer and pass it all the way down to JDBC Layer through controller beans and application beans?

I agree. Here's the link:
