Subject [jira] Created: (DBCP-334) BasicDataSource does not consider the method "setSoftMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis" of CommonsPool.GenericObjectPool
Date Mon, 17 May 2010 16:04:45 GMT
BasicDataSource does not consider the method "setSoftMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis" of CommonsPool.GenericObjectPool

                 Key: DBCP-334
             Project: Commons Dbcp
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.3
            Reporter: Alberto Mozzone
            Priority: Critical

The BasicDataSource should have the "softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis" (get and set) as the
GenericObjectPool, to avoid destroying idle connections below the "minIdle" value. In this
case, connections are dropped and immediately recreated with no reason. The "minEvictableIdleTimeMillis"
should not be considered because there are ways to validate idle connections before they are

The class should have these lines of code, besides those existing:
// property
	private long softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis = GenericObjectPool.DEFAULT_SOFT_MIN_EVICTABLE_IDLE_TIME_MILLIS;
// getter
	 * Returns the {@link #softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis} property.
	 * @return the value of the {@link #softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis} property
	 * @see #softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis
	public synchronized long getSoftMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis() {
		return softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis;

// setter
	 * Sets the {@link #softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis} property.
	 * @param softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis the minimum amount of time an object
	 * may sit idle in the pool 
	 * @see #softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis
	public synchronized void setSoftMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis(final long softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis)
		this.softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis = softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis;
		if (connectionPool != null) {

// creator of the pool
	@Override protected void createConnectionPool() {

I implemented myself a "NotSoBasicDataSource" class, inheriting from "BasicDataSource" and
used it in a single test. It worked: idle connections do not decrease under (and re-grow to)
Please, consider this feature, because it can save resources.
I don't know what is the behavior of the Tomcat DBCP, but it seems to me it has the same problem.

I'm waiting your opinions.
