Subject Re: Tomcat JDBC Pool in Tomcat 6.0.x / 7.0.x
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2011 16:22:09 GMT
I just see a new tag for jdbc-pool.

I'll be very happy to have such advanced pool on Tomcat but we need
some stable release (and of course artifact deployed to Maven

So what's the status for it, and possible inclusion (as extra) in Tomcat 6.0.x ?
