Subject Re: Poolman benefits? (was Re: Connection Pooling)

We are using Poolman with the Oracle thin client.  It does not replace it,
just sits on top of it.

One of the benefits is that you can specify your various pools in an XML
file.  This makes any changes that might need to be made at a later date
simple, and also ensures consistancy across the organization.  Specifying
all your connection pools in one place, even if there are different
databases, is a nice benefit.  It also makes it easier on the developers.
Poolman does not do just connection pooling though, it will pool any object.

We've been using it for a few versions now and have been pretty happy with
it so far.  It's painless to setup and get running, so you might want to
take a look at it and see if it's right for you.
