Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Release Notes for Microsoft Windows

Java Database Connectivity and Connection Pooling Support

Web Server provides out-of-the-box, seamless Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBCTM), and supports a wide range of industry-standard and customized JDBC drivers.

Web Server 7.0 supports JDBC connection pooling that is a group of reusable connections for a particular database. Because creating each new physical connection is time consuming, the server maintains a pool of available connections to increase performance. When an application requests a connection, it obtains a connection from the pool. When an application closes a connection, the connection is returned to the pool.

For information about creating JDBC connection pools, see the Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Administrator's Guide.
