you are repeating yourself (and still top-posting), but you are not providing the crucial

information which would enable someone to really help you.
For example, what "Linux user information (userid)" are you talking about ?

Is it the Linux user-id under which Tomcat is running ?
That would probably be "tomcat", so that is probably not going to help you fulfill your 
customer's wishes.

Is it the user-id of the /user/ of your Tomcat application ?
In that case, how does Tomcat know this user-id ? Do the users login into your application

? How ? What is the user authentication mechanism being used, now, at the Tomcat level ?

Does the Oracle database also know this user-id ? How ?

What does "One of my client want to monitor the connections" mean, exactly ? what does the

customer want to know, and when ? Is this customer the only user/manager of the Oracle 
database, or are there multiple users/managers of the Oracle database ?
