No idea why that would be implied. But maybe I'm misunderstanding what "standalone" means.
Does it mean Swing? Or a daemon with no UI? Or an application which needs to be a double clickable
executable but still serves web pages? In all three cases, Tomcat/Jetty/etc could still be
part of the solution.

I'm a little confused by this email thread because it started off as questions about derby
and then morphed into connection pooling. There are lots of connection pooling libraries out
there such as c3po and dbcp. But I'll step out of this conversation since perhaps I'm not
understanding what is being asked.
