Subject Re: DBCP not ready for production server?

Thanks for the clarification..
Actually I have been using it for our intranet project (2-3 concurrent
user).... and everything seems to work fine..

Only that I dont have the guts (yet) to propose to my boss to throw away our
old Weblogic and migrate to Tomcat for our
external projects.

Perhaps I will do a stress test first on our development server using
Tomcat+DBCP and see how it performs.
