JDBCRealm connection pooling

Hi,

I would like to know whether org.apache.catalina.realm.JDBCRealm class in Tomcat 5 manages DB connection pools.

If I need connection pooling, can I configure the class and re-use it or I would have to implement my own Realm implementation?

Thanks

The realm (and thus the DB connection) is used only when someone logs into an application. I doubt that it's going to be worth the trouble of dealing with a connection pool just for that. How many users are you expecting to sign in (not being logged in!) simultaneously over any extended period of time?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
