close() / reconnect() / disconnect() question

after i called Session.close() i can still retrieve a Connection trough the Session.connection() method. Shouldnt this method throw an Exception or return null after close() ?

Also after Session.close() i can call Session.reconnect() and get a Exception telling me that the Session is already connected. From what i read in the API the Session.close() cleans up and disconnects the session (yup, i know that i should not reconnect a closed session ... i was just experimenting and this exception puzzled me)

Ah looks like you noticed a little bug. This occurs only if you have a session that never uses the JDBC connection (not even to commit the transaction) which would never occur in practice.

Its a trivial fix.
