IN jdbc reuse ability of object is not possible. But in case of JNDI ..if three request is simultaneously coming from browser to web container ..then three object is created ..but when 4th ,5th ...request is coming it is use the object of previous request ..IN case of JNDI it is helpful in case of server crashes....You may be relate this topic with applet(jdbc)and servlet(JNDI).......

Answer / sowji

NDI is a protocol / mechanism used to lookup data / information, resources from a SPI that obeys the JNDI format. JNDI is available for manipulating naming services and directory services only. Examples include JNDI trees of EJB Containers, LDAP Directory Servers etc...
JDBC is a database specific protocol that Database vendors support for Java Data Access.
JNDI is used when your are trying to advertise and lookup data from a naming service or directory service and JDBC is used when you are querying / updating data in a Database server.
