Subject Re: Does JDBCRealm close connections?
Date Tue, 25 Jan 2005 05:44:03 GMT
In a quick scan of the source (4.1.30). The realm does not use pools. It 
opens the connection upon authentication. Then closes it right after. All in 
the same method.

There is a note about adding pooling, and this may be one reason why.

If you have a limit on the number of connection your dbengine can support 
then this may be the cause.

So for the last question, yes, it would keep opening the needed connections 
for logins. But it closes them promptly after retrieval of the data.
