I believe this article is very informative.
What are other J2EE objects (similar to db connection as mentioned here) which can be shared across an application in Tomcat?

  • More pools for Tomcat

    Hello Mike,
    Connection pooling is a standard technique used for sharing resources among several requesting clients. In a typical Java EE environment,you can share both database and non-database resources. Other than JDBC Connection objects, you can share threads, sockets and JMS message queues (JMS API provides these two interfaces: javax.jms.QueueConnectionFactory and javax.jms.QueueConnection).

    Please note, Apache Tomcat is a reference implementation for servlets and JSP technologies, it's not an EJB container. So, if you want to work with EJBs and JMS, you need an app server like BEA WebLogic or an open source alternative like JBoss or Apache Geronimo.
