Subject RE: Why is dbcp / pool removed?
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2003 12:26:01 GMT
Actually, the recommended way is to use JNDI to accquire a data source from the container.
Most container supports it.

	The one included is not the same as what is in RC1, though, correct? I'm
	just trying to figure out exactly what is changed and what I need to start
	experimenting with...

	If you tie your app to your coontainer, then it's not very portable, no? I
	can develop in Tomcat and publish to JRun with no problems, and I like to
	maintain that :)
	I suppose for now a good plan would be to use GenericDataSource and research
	more reliable and portable options for conn pooling in the future? Perhaps
	by then DBCP will be cleaned up and a good stand-alone alternative.
