I just set up a datasource for connection pooling in WSAD 5.1 (test server 4.0). I need to know how many connection it can handle. I have never doing testing before. I want to learn so could anyone please point me to the right direction. ANy tutorial or articles would be much appreciated. I know it may sound dumb, but i don't even know if its JUnit or HTTP test (i think it should be http test because connection would be asked through a client side i.e a browswer since its a website). Thanks a lot for your help and time.

I would personally test the DataSource in isolation from any HTTP stuff since that's irrelevant from the perspective of wanting to know how many connections the pool has.

You could, for example, use Jakarta Cactus or JUnitEE to execute a JUnit test inside the web container.

The JUnit test would then do something like

(Disclaimer: I haven't even compiled the above code)
