I use it and someone from the Axis team recently pinged me to say they 
were using it.

Though thread pools are a bit different from object pools. Typically 
the usage pattern for a thread pool is to dispatch some Runnable to a 
thread pool for processing (maybe creating new threads if required to 
do the work).

Object pools are more for resources like JDBC connections and the usage 
pattern is more to borrow objects and return them from the pool. Though 
the two things are kinda similar.
