Unfortunately, if this is you first Java EE project, you will probably do it incorrectly and make a lot of mistakes. Many of those mistakes will be performance related, some will be maintaibalility and extensibility related. You usually need to try out a few sample projects to familiarize yourself with the technology, then try a few additional projects that focus in on the kinds of things you are doing, before you can really tackle your project. But of course that advice applies to anything new that you are accustomed too (ie, it is not specific to Java EE).

The question in my mind is what is the issue with the way you are doing it? And what capabilities or benefits do you think you will gain by placing an application server between the client apps and the database? With JDBC, you are essentially letting the database act as a server. And databases are very good at managing multiple clients and keeping their updates and queries straight.
