Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Visist

The MCTS: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 certification validates your skills in supporting the maintenance and administration of the Exchange servers in an enterprise environment. Learn everything you need to know with this course.

The best solution (due performance), is mantain a pool of connections availables for all servlets on a unique JVM. Then if you want to pass a connection between servlets in a chain the only thing you have to do is pass a connection number as parameter.
