Subject Re: DBCP Connection Pooling

Hello Vanita!

VS> I am using DBCP  Jdbc2PoolDataSource
I would rather advice you to use BasicDataSourceFactory to
produce BasicDataSource. This code is quite workable.
Jdbc2PoolDataSource probably needs more work on it.

Not 100% sure, have never used Sun Directory Server, but to me
it looks like the data source you have registered on the server
might be for the server's internal use only. Very much likely
this data source is not export to the client.

Probably you should build a datasource into your client application.
If you need a pool on the client BasicDataSource is a good choice.

I would give 95% of confidence to my answer out of 100%.
