Subject Re: [DBCP] what if the server goes off line
Date Sat, 06 Mar 2004 12:56:56 GMT
The simplest way is to restart tomcat when the database becomes 
available after the backup.

Another solution is to use a validationquery to detect if the 
connection to the server is still valid.
for more details.

Another solution is to close the BasicDatasource when the Database 
goes down. Write a servlet that does a JNDI lookup, casts to 
BasicDatasource and then does a ds.close().
(The datasource will start automatically when the next getConnection 
is called).
