Doesn't using the Datasource option imply connection pooling?

Hi

With JBoss-deployed applications I've written in the past, by creating a Datasource for them I automatically get connection pooling functionality. From what I understand JBoss handles the pooling on my behalf.

With JForum I notice that Datasource and ConnectionPooling are two distinct options, both in the interactive and the manual install (although in the interactive install I'm a bit confused, because I can specify the name of the Datasource and still select Connection pooling, whereas in the manual install, I have to configure either or in the SystemGlobals.properties file).

Basically I'm wondering what drawbacks, if any, there are to specifying Datasource name and no connection pooling in the interactive install. Does this prevent JBoss from still pooling my datasource connections?

The reason I have to use the interactive install by the way, is because my smilies aren't showing up on the custom install, and the forum.link and homepage.link settings don't want to work (the links on the forum still point to localhost:8080)

Cheers,

JForum uses C3P0 as connection poll, so that's why there is two options.

About forum.link, check the file jforum-custom.conf, besides SystemGlobals.properties

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
