Thanks a lot for the links - somehow, I could not find anything from
I am simply looking for a library to connect to Oracle, (with connection
pooling ability) that is easy to use but performs decently...

In Apache:

If you need full object/relational mapping OJB or Torque are good 
options. If most of your data is tabular and you want to work with it 
that way, Jakarta commons-dbutils works pretty well.

http://db.apache.org/torque/ http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/dbutils/

Both OJB and Torque use connection pooling -- I think commons-dbutils 
requires that you manage your own connections, I think.

Outside of Apache:

Hibernate, iBatis, TJDO, Cayenne, and Spring DAO all work pretty well. 
iBatis is particularly nice if you want O/R mapping and still want to 
be able to specify your own SQL.
