Subject Re: 4.1 Connection Pool Change to commons-dbcp
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2002 22:06:08 GMT
>From what I understand (and I may be wrong - haven't bothered to look in a
while) development on the Tyrex implementation is pretty much dead - and has
been for quite some time.  Also - there are outstanding issues (sorry I
don't recall the details) with the Tyrex implementation.  I haven't used
Tomcat's pooling up to this point simply because it had used the Tyrex
implementation and I was made aware of bugs in it.

The DBCP package, from my understanding, is a very robust implementation -
and a very active project, from what I recall.  So - if/when issues crop up
with it, you can pretty well be sure that they will be addressed.  I don't
think you can say that for the Tyrex implementation =)

It's a good thing ;)  I wish they'd done it ages ago.
