Hello,
I want to know what can be the consequences of storing the javax.sql.DataSource reference in the ServletContext i.e application scope. I have seen some code where ServletContextListener is implemented and in contextInitialized() method we lookup the datasource and put that in application scope.
It works well as far as I have seen but what would happen under the heavy or medium load on webapplication? Will there be race condition between different threads trying to get the datasource from the ServletContext.getAttribute().
regards
Amit
