Subject Re: subclassing ActionServlet?
Date Fri, 25 May 2001 04:47:47 GMT

I made a sub-class of ActionServlet an overloaded the initXXX()
method that created the connecion pool. I did this because
my database manager beans needed access to the connection
pool parameters.

The other choice is to use something like a singleton or factory
bean pattery that generates the objects (or returns an instance
to an already created one) as you need it. The down side is
it may not have the initialisation parameters it needs. wrote:
