Hello Marcus,
I'm using the package with a lot of data sources and it works fine.

Maybe the problem is in the way you define and link the datasource.

I use this in my virtual host:
<Context docBase="/home/app" path="/app">
  <ResourceLink type="javax.sql.DataSource"
   name="jdbc/mydb" global="jdbc/mydb"

and the datasource is defined in the server.xml (or via admin interface)
in a way similar to this:

<Resource name="jdbc/mydb" type="javax.sql.DataSource"
 username="mydb" password="mypw"
 maxWait="20000" maxIdle="1" maxActive="10"
