Cassandra Connection Pool

For a project of mine I’ve had need for a robust, decent connection pool for Cassandra. Since I use the thrift APIs directly without other layers, I decided to use Tomcat 7’s excellent jdbc-pool as a base. The result is my cassandra-connection-pool which at the moment may be fetched from my github repository at http://github.com/tristantarrant/cassandra-connection-pool
It supports most of the features of its parent implementation: connection validation on creation, release and idle, abandoned connection detection, etc.
Let me know if you use it.
