pgpool-II works as like "proxy" of PostgreSQL. This means, pgpool-II
looks like a client from PostgreSQLs and looks like a PostgreSQL server
from your appliction.

[application] <-> [pgpool-II] <-> [PostgreSQL(s)]

So, you don't need to change so many code of your apps. 

However, please note that pgpool-II some restrictions. For example,
pgpool-II cannot process multi-statement queries.
