Yes. What happens is that the MySQL server closes the connecion at the
server end, due to it not being used for an extended period of time. In
our experience this timeout is 8 hours. The server does not notify DBCP
or the calling application. So you end up with a JDBC connection on the
Java end that is unusable.

What you need to do is make sure that each connection in the pool is
used every 8 hours or less. I don't use DBCP myself, but there usually
is a timer you can set in  a connection pool that runs a really simple
keep-alive query in a given interval.
