In Model2 Architecture of JSP,
We are using Servlets,JSP's and Beans.
In this, Beans are connecting to Other
Resources.
That means, in Beans only , we have to
do the Database Transactions.
Then what about the connection pooling.
Will Bean takes care of Connection Pooling.
Where as in Servlets, Connection pooling will be taken care by Server.
Even, we can write the Connection once
in the init() method Servlet Cycle and
use it in the whole Servlet Program.

So, I would like to know about where to take care of the database Transactions
whether to be in Servlets or in Beans or in JSP's.

According to the J2EE architecture, the transactional access to databases is best implemented in the Enterprise Java Beans. The EJB run in an application server which manages the transactions. Application servers usually support database connection pooling as well.

If using EJB is not an option for you, you can access databases from each kind of program you've mentioned. But then transaction management and conection pooling are up to you to implement. I would arrange them in the order of decreased preference as

Java Beans
Servlets
JSP

You typically do not whant to put any business logic in JSP, they should access Java Beans containing the business logic (the whole idea of JSP is that they are written by non-Java programmers) . It is similar with servlets, which should serve more as controllers than as business logic containers.

Dear Friend!
  It is also possible to maintain a Connection Pooling using a bean. But,imagine what happens if we created more than one object for that bean. Then multiple connections will be opened, which in turn increase the traffic. So ,it is better to maintain Connection pooling in Servlet init() method. In JSP Model 2 Architecture Servlet is said to be controller--which decides about which bean to instantiate to process the clinet request. So, obviously it the controller's duty to maintain a connection to the resources--at least in this case, which needs multiple connections to a data base.
