When you create a connection pool that uses JDBC technology (a JDBC connection pool) in the GlassFish Server, you can define many of the characteristics of your database connections.
You can create a JDBC connection pool in one of these ways:
In the Administration Console, open the Resources component, open the JDBC component, select Connection Pools, and click on the New button. This displays the New JDBC Connection Pool page. For details, click the Help button in the Administration Console.
Use the asadmin create-jdbc-connection-pool command. For details, see the Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Reference Manual.
For a complete description of JDBC connection pool features, see the Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Administration Guide.
