ORMs remove the object-relational impedance mismatch. Sort of.

Hibernate is an object relational mapping library made up of java and for java. It provides object oriented domain model which resonates with java programming concepts. Moreover, it offers high level object handling which prevents database manipulation issues and inconsistencies. It is also free and open source software.

It is not to be compared with a connection pool because it is an object relational mapping tool/library. However if your question is: what connection pool does the hibernate use? If this was your question, then the answer is: Hibernate can accept and use different connection pool by editing its configuration xml, it also has its own connection pool but according to my research, the most used connection pool for hibernate is c3p0, just download the jar and configure its properties on configuration xml file.
