Subject Re: Child Contexts
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 19:03:55 GMT
Hey Michael and Robert,

Ok so i got the difference between context and connection. So how can i
close all connections before closing an application, a servlet or a
portlet? My main problem here is that on each deploy of a new web
application the connections from former deployments stay on (like memory
leaks), and i need to close them or at least use one pool for the whole

I was thinking about putting the Context on the HTTPSession of the
application server or making a context that is used permanently by the
server... Any ideas how to do it on liferay or tomcat?

Thank you
