It's a new technology and there are not many people having so much 
experience for providing best practices. I did it with an Avalon 
component, but I can't imagine that this solution is faster than 
instantiating a plain java object as you have to assign the Avalon 
lifecycle (I use Cocoon logging in my class). Even pooling will not elp 
much as a lookup often takes more time than an instantiation. But this 
depends obviously heavily on the class to instantiate of course. If you 
need heavy calculation for it, remote lookups, etc. it will be probably 
better to pool it. Otherwise not.

All IMO.
