Maybe the application doesn't have support for connection pooling and can't be easily
replaced. Maybe there's just that much clients instead of a central service. Maybe
there's not just a single application that uses that database.
As usual, Harald, you fail to realise that your experience does not encompass the whole of
human civilisation. You seem to have a good technical background, but it might be useful
to learn to consider problems from the point of view of the people who have them, at
times. It tends to be a much appreciated skill in the real world.
