Hi Steve,

Thanks a lot for your advice.

I cannot use servlet as it is shown in the example in javaexchange site.

Now based on your design, My Bean looks like this

public class DBBean{
    public static DbConnectionBroker db;

    //now I will have a method which get the connection

     public Connection getDbConnection(){

     public void ReleaseDbConnection(Connection cn){


//Could you please comment on this.  Is this the way you have written your 

Does the statis reference inside the bean will stay for entire lenght of the 
web server

>>When I instantiate the bean in the data layer I check to see if
>>that broker object exists if it doesn't I go ahead and instantiate >>it

Could you please comment on this.

do you create the scope as session or application.  If you check in first 
jsp page whether statis variable has been intialized or not, then does the 
same info exists in another jsp page.

<jsp:usebean Id="db" class=DBBean  scope=session/>
<jsp:usebean Id="db" class=DBBean  scope=application/>

I appreciate your response.


This is how I dealt with it.

I downloaded dbConnectionPool from
Fabulous documentation here.

I created a bean with a static instance of their broker object.

When I instantiate the bean in the data layer I check to see if
that broker object exists if it doesn't I go ahead and instantiate it it.
In the bean I've got a method to get a connection from the pool and
to free the connection.

Works fabulously in production.
