Subject RE: DBCP not opening multiple connections
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2002 23:08:27 GMT
Yes, from my understanding and use of other connection pool implementations, that is the way
it is supposed to work.

Perhaps you are experiencing similar symptoms as myself. I have using the DBCP connection
pool with MS SQL and have found that connections are being opened when there are already open
connections that have been returned to the connection pool. I have checked all my code to
ensure that a close() call exists and is in a finally block. When I switched to a different
pooling implementation the problem disappeared. 

Is this the reason for your question?

Since DBCP pools connections, you should expect to see roughly no more
connections created than are used in parallel, yes?
