public class SharedPoolDataSource extends InstanceKeyDataSource

A pooling DataSource appropriate for deployment within J2EE environment. There are many configuration options, most of which are defined in the parent class. All users (based on user name) share a single maximum number of Connections in this data source.

User passwords can be changed without re-initializing the data source. When a getConnection(user name, password) request is processed with a password that is different from those used to create connections in the pool associated with user name, an attempt is made to create a new connection using the supplied password and if this succeeds, idle connections created using the old password are destroyed and new connections are created using the new password.
