Hello Javaranch, I need a clarification from you guys regarding Database Connection pooling technique in JDBC. The point is, in the specification and in an article in javaworld (http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-10-2000/jw-1027-pool.html) it is mentioned that it works when you have a application server and in 3 tier architecture. Cant i use the connection pooling apis when i use client server architechture and in cases where i do not use Application server? If my server is JWS 2.0 how to go about it? If i can achieve the above in client-server architechture, kindly tell me know how to achieve that. thanking in advance kiran
