    Connection Pooling - Passing your pool to the application

    ***** My environment *****
    JDK - 1.5
    App Server - Tomcat 5.5
    Database - Sysbase
    Framework - Struts

    ***** My question *****
    When my application starts we kickoff a Startup Servlet that extends HttpServlet. In this servlet I initialize the DB Pool with a min of 5 connections. This creates a pool that stores the connections. So the only use of our servlet is to init the application.

    How do you pass the pool object to the rest of the application? What is the best way to handle this? Please help. . .

    This is not the way you should use connection pool. You should configure a JNDI datasource in Tomcat. It will be available to all the applications.
