It is using connection pooling (see mordred).  And yes we once used 
Excalibur's connection pooling classes, only to realize after the fact 
that it was extremely buggy.  Excalibur's db conn pooler has been 
improved since then, but we're set to move to DBCP and use 
javax.sql.DataSource as the primary way of accessing a connection pool.
