Hi... I'm developing a batch software. And I have the problem, for example, if somebody removes the net cable the application notices that the connection cannot be used (does this with a test like select sysdate from dual) and keeps trying to reconnect. When the cable is plugged, it reconects (creates a new connection) and start it's work. The only problem is that the old connection goes to INACTIVE state, and blocks the new connection when the application creates a new transaction to execute the process. The question is: is there some way to get INACTIVE connections???
