pyorapool is a connection pooling daemon using python and pyro that can be used from ORMs like Django.
Django until version 1.1 does not keep any connections between requests open but creates a new one for every query which can make it pretty slow.
pyorapool will keep connections open and will automatically reuse them again when another query is made through it. Connection timeout and error cases are handled automatically.
pyorapool includes a django database backend that can be used as a replacement for the django oracle backend which will use pooled connections.
pyorapool has been developed by tesobe.com and is in active daily use on musicpictures.com.
