Subject DBCP problem with idle object
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2008 17:17:42 GMT
Hello group!

This is the first time i actuali write something in here. First of all - 
please excuse my bad english, it is not my native language. Now to get 
to the point... I have problems implementing DBCP on my Tomcat 6.0.18 in 
my web applications. I don't want to use JNDI, that is why i have 
ServletContextListener, in witch i do as follows in order:

1.Define GenericObject Pool
2. Define ConnectionFactory as implementation of 
3.Define PoolableConnectionFactory with the previously created 
GenericObjectPool and ConnectionFactory
4.Define PoolingDataSource with the GenericObjectPool object from step 1

Then i "stick" my PoolingDataSource to the servlet context, retreive it 
in my JSPs and servlets and aquire a connection via "getConnection()" 
(which returns Connection object). I make sure to close() all my 
connections at the edn of the pages...I am sure that the connections 
that are opened dont exceed the number 100 (which is the maximum number 
of connections on my database - a MySQL database system), so i think 
there must be something wrong with my pooling code. The exact error i 
get is:

"Exception: Cannot get a connection, pool error Timeout waiting for idle 
object SQL Exception Connection is closed. SQLException Connection is 
closed." At some point i began to ask myself if it the problem is caused 
by the restarts(reloads) i do for that exact application, because the 
other work fine (byt i dont play with them that much)... My 
configurations for the GenericObjectPool and 
DriverManagerConnectionFactory are as follows:

GenericObjectPool.Config config=new GenericObjectPool.Config();

Properties p=new Properties();
            p.setProperty("user", user);
            p.setProperty("password", password);
            p.setProperty("useUnicode", "true");
            p.setProperty("characterEncoding", "CP1251");
            p.setProperty("autoReconnect", "true");

Can You help me please? Any help will be appriciated. Thanks in advance, 
and accept my apologies if i have breaked some rules of the group or 
something like that.

All best,
