A customized factory which extends

Is this SQL valid?  If for some reason this SQL was failing, it would cause
your connection count to go to zero.  Same with the validation query,
although that looks OK.

Few minutes, not sure of the exact timing. Yes, all are 0.

 Does it generate any error messages?

I can still get newer connections even after the count drops to 0.
