Can anyone tell me what exactly is a connection pool?..and where it is IMPLEMENTED?..
ADO.NET says it manages it automatically!..so is it like a pool on the client managed by the ADO classes?..or is it on the SQL server?..
How can I optimize my pools?..
is the connection pool per program?..per session?...
any info would be appreciated!
Thanks

Connection Pool is a technique by which the connection to the database is kept open, even if it is closed by the application which has opened it. Opening a connection to database is a bit time consuming. Hence Connection Pooling improves performance of the application to a great extent.
