If that's part of a JSP, never look at that example again.
That sort of code (or indeed ANY code) does NOT belong in a JSP.
Nor should anyone, ever, directly reference any of the classes in the com.sun packages.
This code references a connection pool provided by an application server.
The application server itself will hold the actual database configuration, including database URL, username, password, driverclass, etc. etc..
