Subject Re: DBCP oracle connections less than minActive ?
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2003 22:33:19 GMT
Oracle can indeed service multiple clients using one server process.
In the latest version you can also configure that multiple Connections 
are using the same network socket to connect to the database.
But this is all transparant to the user.
On the client you will still have a normal "Connection" object and you 
will see for each "Connection" an oracle session in v$session.
