I'm interested in hearing what you are thinking. A lot has been done
with Pool since the last release. Pool 1.3 is just about ready IMO and
much of the work planed for a 2.0 release has been committed to the
trunk. Also, I've implemented a new pool implementation that uses a
builder pattern to compose an optimally performing pool
implementations for the requested configuration. That implementation
is currently working it's way through the incubator since it was
written before I was an Apache committer.

Dbcp depends significantly on Pool and a number of the problems with
it are inherited from it using Pool which 1.2 and earlier have some
really broken behavior. I haven't thought much about Dbcp yet but it's
next on my personal task list after Pool 2.

Pool plans:

1.3 branch:

Pool 2.0:
