I've been pondering which database driver I should be registering with the JdbcProvider MBean. My driver is for Oracle 8 (and isn't Oracle's 1.9MB beast)....and the driver comes with a general driver _and_ a pooled driver.
My question is this...does JBoss handle pooling of JDBC connections internally (in which case I should specify the general driver), or does it rely on the driver to do the pooling (in which case I should specify the pooled driver).
Any thoughts ?
The pooled driver has its own pooling built in afaik. JBoss will pool your driver and you can safely use the standard one.
