Subject RE: Datasource and connection
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2003 18:25:31 GMT
I'm curious as to why you're asking this question.  You should be using the
connection pool according to the documentation provided, because that is how
it is intended to be used.  That is...

void doPost(...)
  InitialContext ic = new InitialContext();
  Context jdbcCtx = (Context) ic.lookup("java:comp/env");
  DataSource ds = (DataSource) jdbcCtx.lookup("jdbc/myDataSource");

  Connection conn = null;
  Statement stmt = null;
  ResultSet rs = null;

  try {
    conn = ds.getConnection();

    stmt = ...

    rs = ...
  catch(SQLException esql) {
  finally {
    if(rs != null)

    if(stmt != null)

    if(conn != null)

What exactly are you THINKING of doing?

Subject: Datasource and connection

Hi everybody!

I'm using datasource of tomcat for get connection.
Well, when i do this:
DataSource ds = (DataSource)ctx.lookup( "java:comp/env/jdbc/Anything");
if (ds != null)
    connection = ds.getConnection();

In the next time, will give tomcat  to me a new connection or the same?

I think that is same, but i didn't read anything about this.

And when Tomcat close this connection? Only through the timeout?

Thanks in advanced.
