Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Revert to commons-pool-1.2
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2007 00:29:23 GMT
Doing some Gump work reminded me:  Once we upgrade to the next version of 
DBCP, that will add a dependancy on JTA.  Gump caught this in July, and I 
added the dependancy to Gump then.  We can probably just use Geronimo's 
version for Tomcat, but I thought I should send out a heads-up, in case 
there are people who ignore Gump nags :).
