Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache Commons DBCP 1.3 and 1.4 Released
Date Tue, 16 Feb 2010 03:32:46 GMT
The Apache Commons project would like to announce the immediate
availability of Commons DBCP versions 1.3 and 1.4.

Commons DBCP is a database connection pool. Version 1.4 supports
JDBC 4, so requires JDK 1.6.  Version 1.3 supports JDBC 3.
Applications running under JDK 1.4-1.5 must use DBCP 1.3.
Applications running under JDK 1.6 should use DBCP 1.4. Other than
support for the added methods in JDBC 4, there is nothing new or
different in DBCP 1.4 vs. DBCP 1.3.

In addition to support for JDBC 4 in 1.4, both releases contain
numerous bug fixes and enhancements. Support for pooling managed
connections and callable statements has been added, and several
long-standing API consistency and reliability issues have been
resolved.  A detailed list of changes can be found in the release notes:

Commons DBCP depends on Commons Pool. DBCP users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest Commons Pool version - currently 1.5.4.

Commons DBCP is available in either binary or source form from the
following downloads page:

Please verify signatures using the KEYS file available at the above
location when downloading the release.
