Subject RE: DB Connection Pool
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2012 15:17:07 GMT
I use 6.0.29, and there was a setting I had to change to keep some connections from hanging
or timing out.

Although I use Tomcat's DBCP, and not OracleDataSource.

I think it was this first line here.


If you can go back to DBCP, check that...and why did you need to cast to Oracle's connection?

Can you verify this through your database?  Perhaps the monitoring tool is not showing the
correct information?

This sounds like an application issue.  Check to make sure it is not storing connections retrieved
from the connection pool and check to make sure that you are properly closing connection (i.e.
correctly using try..catch..finally).

If possible, maybe run FindBugs.  That's a good way to catch errors like these.

Can't really say with OracleDataSource.  With DBCP there is "removeAbandoned" / "removeAbandonedTimeout"
/ "logAbandoned" which can be used to reclaim connections that have been held by the application
for too long.

>> This looks fairly normal with the exception that you are using an OracleDataSource.
 Not sure how much this list will be able to help you if the problem is with the connection
pool.  You'd probably need to contact Oracle.

once when I get DBCP datasource from JNDI (getInnerConnection() also didn't helped), so I
swithced from DBCP to OracleDataSource.

The documentation for DBCP say to do this...

1.) Set  "accessToUnderlyingConnectionAllowed" to "true" (it defaults to false)

2.) Use this construct to get the connection.  Do NOT close the underlying connection, only
the original one!

    Connection conn = ds.getConnection();
    Connection dconn = ((DelegatingConnection) conn).getInnermostDelegate();

I have not done this though, so I cannot be sure it will work for you.
