Applications using Foundations.NET rely on ADO.NET for accessing the database, thus all connections pass through the ADO.NET which uses an optimization technique called "connection pooling", which minimizes the cost of repeatedly opening and closing connections. Connection pooling is handled differently for the .NET Framework data providers. Further details Details on how the pooling actually works (eg: how the pool grows/shrinks, how and when are connections released, etc...) is best detailed on Microsoft's .NET documentation. Some links/resources are listed below.
