The Apache Jakarta Commons Team has released Commons Pool 1.4.

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.

"Version 1.4 is a maintenance release including numerous bug fixes. This release is source and binary compatible with version 1.3 of commons pool, but there are some behavior changes introduced to resolve bugs, remove ambiguity or improve robustness."
