  • Tomcat - Hibernate - MySQL - Which connection pool manager ?

    Hi everybody,

    we have a Spring application which will run under Tomcat/Hibernate/MySQL.

    Now, I would like to configure a connection pool manager and of course I have several possibilities:
    - Spring inside connection pool
    * C3P0
    * DBCP
    * ...
    - Tomcat connection pool using JNDI to retrieve it

    I read some threads ( for example) saying that C3P0 seems better then DBCP. But I would have some arguments to choose between "spring inside" and "tomcat one".

    I've used c3p0 a few times in the past with no problems. We tried a few different options previously to this but we ended up going to c3p0.
