No. It stores connection information, and DataSource.getConnection() can be used to establish a connection with the data source that this DataSource object represents.

so what's a data source object?

what's the difference between
DriverManager.getConnnection("jdbcdbc:dsn",�un�,�pw�);
and
DataSource.getConnection();

DriverManager is used to register and load drivers and then establish connection and the DataSource interface for establishing connections. Just the Way a DriverManager returns a Connection object.

DataSource returns a Connection object when a method getConnection() is called. While the DriverManger loads driver classes(actually the drivers register with the DriverManager when they are loaded).
