Subject Re: [DBCP] Testing of connections

Yes, the current release has only one validation query spot, which as 
you say is during testOnBorrow.

This will still cause your firewall to kill connections, and then DBCP 
will validate the connection, find it's bad, and get a good connection 
for your app.  (For me this is preferrable to keeping idle connections 
open just because of a periodic validation check.)
