Thanks, but this doesnt help me.
Connection poolling is set up in server xml and I understand all I need to about this.
What I am unsure about is whether I have to user JNDI to get it to work.
I do not want to configure web.xml for the database connection, although I know how to do this also.
The way I have designed my pages is to use a java bean to get connections and return resultsets, so all I have to do is pass strings from my jsp to the bean. I like this as it keeps the jsp clean and would prefer to continue with this way of working.
But will connection poolling defined in server.xml work with this methodology?
Everything I read makes reference to JNDI and I am not sure whether pooling is dependant on it.
In short, is dbcp dependant on jndi???
