The Apache Jakarta Commons Team has released Commons Pool 1.3.

Pool provides an Object-pooling API, with three major aspects:

  1. A generic object pool interface that clients and implementors can use to provide easily interchangable pooling implementations.
  2. A toolkit for creating modular object pools.
  3. Several general purpose pool implementations.

"This release fixes a number of bugs and adds a few enhancements. The most significant fix is the GenericObjectPool was documented as a FIFO but implemented as a LIFO, it now behaves as a FIFO."
