It's a bit off topic, but you should stop doing that. Struts stopped
supporting DataSource configuration /years/ ago in favor of
container-manager data sources.

Your pooled database connections are probably timing out. After the
first error, do you get continuous errors afterward, or do the
connections reconnect or anything like that?

Your best bet is to configure your data source through Tomcat. See
(specifically, the "Context Configuration" section) for a simple example
of how to enable container-managed data sources. Just put the <Resource>
element into your META-INF/context.xml file (you /are/ using a
META-INF/context.xml file, right?!). Remember to set a "validation
query" so that connections will be tested for connectivity before they
are handed over to your application.
