If anyone has, I'd like to hear how you implemented the username and password for the DB.
the sample JOCL that they provide only the connect string. Can i append user and pass to that somehow? here is the sample jocl xml:
<object class="org.apache.commons.dbcp.PoolableConnectionFactory" xmlns="">
<!-- the first argument is the ConnectionFactory -->
<object class="org.apache.commons.dbcp.DriverManagerConnectionFactory">
<string value="jdbc:some:connect:string"/>
<object class="java.util.Properties" null="true"/>
<!-- the next argument is the ObjectPool -->
<object class="org.apache.commons.pool.impl.GenericObjectPool">
<object class="org.apache.commons.pool.PoolableObjectFactory" null="true"/>
<int value="10"/> <!-- max active -->
<byte value="1"/> <!-- when exhausted action, 0 = fail, 1 = block, 2 = grow -->
<long value="2000"/> <!-- max wait -->
<int value="10"/> <!-- max idle -->
<boolean value="false"/> <!-- test on borrow -->
<boolean value="false"/> <!-- test on return -->
<long value="10000"/> <!-- time between eviction runs -->
<int value="5"/> <!-- number of connections to test per eviction run -->
<long value="5000"/> <!-- min evictable idle time -->
<boolean value="true"/> <!-- test while idle -->
<!-- the next argument is the KeyedObjectPoolFactory -->
<object class="org.apache.commons.pool.StackKeyedObjectPoolFactory">
<int value="5"/> <!-- max idle -->
<string value="SELECT COUNT(*) FROM DUAL"/> <;!-- validation query -->
<boolean value="false"/> <!-- default read only -->
<boolean value="true"/> <!-- default auto commit -->
any help would be appreciated. here is a URL to the api if anyone is interested:

Put your db connection url there.

Try out the commons list. sign up at


See? Use a query string: ?user=root&amp;password=my_pw
Since it's xml, you have to escape the & to &amp;
