Hi

Like to understand more about the relationship betwee connection pool and datasource in Weblogic 8.1.

Can I configure connection pool only without creating any datasource?

And access the database directly by getting a connection from the connection pool?

What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Thanks for your help.

You can always create connection pool without creating data source but data sources are tied to atlead one connection pool and when a client needs a connection from connection pool, it looks up data source in jndi and then gets a connection from connection using data source
I think you can also get a connection without using a data source
