I am not sure that I totally follow the arguments here, but it seems that there exist
- a JDBC pool with good performance, but no fail-over
- a JDBC pool with failover, but bad performance
Why not move the problem one level higher, and instead of using one tomcat with several 
pools, use several tomcats each with their own pool ?
Several tomcats can be configured as a "failover pool" of tomcats, no ?
