Subject Re: Urgent help, please!Best practices using Connection Pool
Date Wed, 08 Oct 2003 23:28:35 GMT
Hi Jose,
the connection that you are served by your data source is a connection 
wrapper where the close method will not really close the connection, 
rather it will tell the connection pool that this connection is free and 
can be put back in the pool.


PS I wouldn't flag your email as "urgent" - I doubt it makes much 
difference to how quickly you get an answer, and often it only serves to 
put people off from reading your mail at all, simply because it annoys 
them that you consider your email should have higher priority for some 
reason than everyone else's. As if everyone is sitting around happily 
chatting about really non-urgent things. (which they do sometimes, but 
mostly not).
