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?
 
Have you checked out Aspose?
