Subject RE: db connections and Abusive refresh

If you are not going to use MVC is there any reason why you can't do your
database accesses at the top of your JSP and the put the results in
variables to be output below in the page? Sorry, if I don't understand your
question, but it sounded like you were holding a database connection open
until a scriplet closes it at the bottom of the page.

Hello Laurent,


Here is an example.  Take notice of how connections, result sets, and
prepared statements are guaranteed to be closed in the "finally"

public Site getSite( int _id ) throws SQLException
        Connection conn = null;
        Site newSite    = null;

        try {
            conn = openConn();
            newSite = getSite(_id, conn);
            return newSite;
        catch(SQLException e) {
            System.out.println(MSG_ERROR_CONNECTION + e.getMessage());
            throw e;
        finally {
            if (conn != null)  try { closeConn(conn); } catch(Exception e2)

    //  Get a single site by id
    public Site getSite( int _id, Connection _conn ) throws SQLException
        PreparedStatement pstmt = null;
        ResultSet rs = null;
        Site newSite = null;

        String query = "SELECT id, url, description, created, updated,
deleted " +
                       "FROM site WHERE id = ?";

        try {
            pstmt = _conn.prepareStatement(query);
            rs = pstmt.executeQuery();

            while ( {
                newSite = Site.fromResults(rs);
                if (debug) System.out.println("\n" + newSite);
            return newSite;
        catch(SQLException e) {
            System.out.println(MSG_ERROR_RESULTSET + e.getMessage());
            throw e;
        finally {
            if (rs != null)    try { rs.close(); }    catch(Exception e2) {}
            if (pstmt != null) try { pstmt.close(); } catch(Exception e3) {}

You can also use Syncronization if it is still a problem.
