The trouble is MS Access and/or its JDBC driver(s) are [reportedly] highly 
buggy and you risk corrupting the database if you access it simultaneously 
from multiple HTTP requests. I would suggest you export your data to a 
better DBMS. Of course this may not be feasible in your case.

The connection pool is for efficiency in your own SQL code, but the XSP 
taglib already includes connection pooling (IIRC). So just use the SQL 
taglib, it's easy.

Can't help you there. Ask Microsoft.
