Clemens,

While you _can_ share a connection across threads (especially if each thread has its own Statement), it's usually not a good idea. The JDBC API is not really designed to be used in a thread-safe way, and most JDBC connections (including MySQL's) can only process a single query at a time.

You'll be adding _more_ contention in your system rather than concurrency compared to just giving each thread a "private" connection.
