I am using direct JDBC connections in my web application. It seems to me that it opens too many connections to database and I need to do something.

Would somone please forward me to code snippet that shows how can I use Tomcat managed database connections?

Using the container-managed connection pooling should indeed solve your problem. I've moved this to the Tomcat forum where it should get better exposure to Tomcat users.
