Subject RE: strange tomcat Behavior need urgent help.
Date Sun, 19 Dec 2004 12:44:45 GMT

Hi Krishnakant,

I think there was a problem with MySQL connections after a certain amount of
time. I am assume that you have defined a Datasource within TC and are using
a connection pool for the connection. If not, I would highly recommend doing
so, especially since your problem could be related to not having a
connection pool. If you do have all of the above I would try adding the
following parameters to your ressource (within your applicationName.xml

<ResourceParams name="jdbc/yourJNDIname">

You will have to play around with the values provided above but these have
worked for me so they might be a reasonable starting point. If this doesn't
help, I would suggest searching --> I think
there must be plenty of posts related to your problem.

HTH, Jan
