we have this application (using jboss/java/hibernate) on linux accessing 
data on 3 postgres database servers using 8.4.1. 

One of our many concerns has been the way we handle connections to the 
database.  java/hibernate handle their own pooling so I understand that 
using anything else is out of the question.  Our jboss configuration 
currently defaults to 5 connections per database.  On our main database 
server, we handle 7 of the databases that this application uses.  On 
this one server, we usually average around 300 - 500 connections to the 
server.  In our postgres conf file on this particular machine we set the 
max_connection parameter to 1000.  If we set it to much lower we end up 
with connection errors.  Any comments or better way to handle this?
