Quick question, if I have my <Resource.../> tag in my webapp's META-INF/context.xml to set up a database connection pool, where does Tomcat put this pool? Specifically what I want to know, if I deploy 3 WAR files all with the same <Resource.../> tag in their META-INF/context.xml files, will Tomcat create 3 seperate database connection pools or will Tomcat somehow know the pools are the same and all three apps will share a single connection pool?
