I'm trying to do something a bit nonstandard for legacy issues.
I want to use a connection pool for new server-side stuff. I also have a large pre-existing applet which uses JDBC and crafts its own SQL. It has profound linkage to the JDBC driver API.
What I need to know is, is there a safe way to connect from that applet to the app server's connection pool using the JDBC api?
I have already seen the wiki page called ConfigDataSources. I want absolutely nothing to do with the use-java-context flag. This is an enterprise application that handles very large sums of money, and an unsafe practice is not an option.
What I'm hoping for is that I can get some sort of remote interface for the connection pool, and use it as though it were a JDBC driver. Can anyone help me with this?
