Subject Re: Tomcat connection pool contribution

I think there is a solution that would make everyone happy :-) - put this
code and
everything that depends on it in a separate module ( separate == different
release cycle and binary ). I don't know if it should be in a separate svn
tree, probably
would be better.

Then you can cut a release - and with a bit of tricks may work with existing
tomcat5 or 6.

Regarding scope - yes, maybe moving it to commons would be better, but the
question is who's going to maintain it. If other projects pick it up - no
problem with moving
it, but as long as tomcat is the main user and you probably the main
maintainer, it's better
to keep it in tomcat ( and hopefully other tomcat people get enough
familiarity with the
code to be able to vote +1 on releasing it :-).

My primary concern is to have the dependency right - the new module can
depend on tomcat,
but tomcat should not have any direct dep. on the new code. I wouldn't mind
if all the existing JDBC
related components would move to the new module as well :-).
