Thanks Jeanne, Probably I'd be using DataSource instead.
I've got another question about my current implementation. Can this single connection be used by more than one user at a time concurrently or is it synchronized? note that I'm actually establishing a connection to the DB before bounding the Conn. object into the context, and later just getting the Conn. object and use it to query DB.
