Depends on where you want to deploy it. Some servlet containers need a war file, whereas others are happy to serve web apps out of a directory tree.

Also, what do you mean by "online" - opening up your machine to the network (or world)? Or renting server space somewhere?

Uploading it to a smtp based server plus the container used will be tomcat

SMTP is a mail protocol; do you mean HTTP?

As I said, Tomcat can serve web apps out of a directory tree.

I am also uploading in HTTP. I have created the site using servlet and jsp & Tomcat as a container. What difference will it make(in real world) if i go for connection pooling?

However, that "directory tree" must still be in WAR form. It's called an "exploded WAR".

Also, there are 2 ways to interpret the words "directory tree". I often have may WARs in a "directory tree", but by that I mean that I have the WAR file in some other directory than TOMCAT_HOME/webapps. It's still a WAR file, however. I'm presuming, though that what was meant here was a WAR directory structure (exploded WAR). Exploded WARs can also live either in TOMCAT_HOME/webapps or in a general external "directory tree".

Any webapp sophisticated enough to be worth the trouble and expense of coding in Java should be using database connection pooling.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
