axis2: connection pool vs servicelifecycle

I've read a few articles and tutorials now on extending the servicelifecycle in axis2 to establish a database connection at the time a service is launched, and using that connection for the lifetime of the service. In this case, the recommendation is to create the connection in the startUp method and the cleanup in the shutDown method.

It looks like a fine approach, but I'm not clear on why this would be preferable to using a connection pool instead (ie. it seems more beneficial to be able to draw on a pool of existing connections rather than establishing a single one at startup time).

Any thoughts?
