Can we preserve Connection object

Dear sirs,

Can we preserve Connection object using any of the desin pattern such as service locator?
Will the container close the connection itself after some idle time? If that is the case, how can we preserve the connection?
I heard that to obtain a connection every time, is additional overhead to the container..

Thank you,
Sudheesh K S

Use a ConnectionPool, they do this for you. If you search this forum you will find references to free implementations.

"Sudheesh K S",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
