What will happen when we get a corrupted connection object for a connection pool? Can the JDBC program recover from it?
Thanks in advance

Not sure what you mean by a corrupted connection object. Usually drivers are designed to handle any abnormalities while obtaining a connection or using a connection.
Having implemented the JDBC APIs, the driver should raise exceptions in such cases which would then be thrown up to the application.

Thanks Sajid.
Actually this was a question asked to me in an interview. So, I am equally not sure what the interviewer wanted as answer :roll:
