Subject RE: [C2] SQLTransformer
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2001 13:37:42 GMT
You seem to be absolutely right.

We're using a slightly different version of SQLTransformer (the one Sven
Beauprez was working on), and he assured me that he had followed the
evolutions SQLTransformer in C2 and made all relevant patches on our
version. Now Sven is on a holiday (which is the reason I got involved in
it), so I'll have to wait a few weeks more before I can strangle him ;)

There's still one problem though: if the pool of connections is empty when
you arrive at line 827, the thing just explodes (you'll only notice this
under load). 

I've tried to loop there until I get a connection, but this of course leads
to a deadlock (almost all our queries are nested 2 deep, so if 20 requests
arrive at the same time for a pool of 10 connections, all nested queries are

I'm now trying to get a hold on all necessary connections before trying to
execute the queries. Wish me luck, because it looks like a bee's nest to

Thanks for your reaction, and my excuses for the misunderstanding

I don't know what version of SQLTransformer you are talking about,
IIRC this was fixed in CVS a weeks ago. If not, please show these 
lines of code.

Right now ($Revision: from cocoon_20_branch), query is executed
in method "executeQuery(int index)", and it also extracts all results in
"while (" loop, and then connection is closed in "finally"
