ObjectDataSource And Connection Pool

I use an ERP system that has muliple Business Objects created for different aspects of the application.

In doing some ASP.NET Development today, I wanted to make use of some of these BO's so that I could connect and make use of the logic the system needs to work properly.
In doing so, I was able to successfully create a new ObjectDataSource and see that I can in fact make use of the logic.  My question however, is that in my application the usage of a connection pool is required almost like a connection string and I"m not sure how to tell my ObjectDataSource what this actual connection pool is actually.

I can write custom VB.NET code to connect like below and it works just fine.  Just would like to use the ObjectDataSource if at all possible.  Seems to me its a LOT more clean.

Here is how I would hard code kicking off the objects "GetList" event.  Would LOVE to do this with an ObjectDataSource so I can just bind things like my datagrids to this.

        Dim objSess As Epicor.Mfg.Core.Session
        objSess = New Epicor.Mfg.Core.Session("Username", "Password", "IP TO APPLICATION SERVER", Epicor.Mfg.Core.Session.LicenseType.Default)
        Dim recSelected As Boolean
        Dim objShipToList As New Epicor.Mfg.BO.ShipTo(objSess.ConnectionPool)
        Dim dsShipToListDataSet As New Epicor.Mfg.BO.ShipToListDataSet
        dsShipToListDataSet = objShipToList.GetList("ShipToNum = '2'", 0, 1, recSelected)

One option is to write the above code in a method and then specify that method as the SelectMethod of the objectdatasource
