I have seen some applications using drivermanager though spome others are using DataSource. One high level advantage i know of using DataSource over drivermanager is that it provides connectionPooling. Is it the main advantage of using DataSource over drivermanager ?

Another question is what kind of advantage it provides even if we are getting the connection from pool instead of drivermanager? i mean dont we have to worry about connection close in connectionpooling or some other advantages are there? what happens if we dont close the connection in case of datasource . will it keep it in pool even we are not closing the connection or will it still be considered as a case of connection leak?
