Hi,
I have a question.I use datasource.getConnection() to get the connection as
below.
My question is does getConnection() have to be synchronized? Won't the
datasource manage the connections in the pool.

public Connection static synchronized getConnection(){
Connection conn = null;
try{
DataSource dataSource = serviceLocator.getInstance().getDataSource
(dataSourceName);
conn = dataSource.getConnection();
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
//do something here
}
return conn;
}

Johnson,
No the calls to getConnection() don't have to be synchronized. The datasource/driver handles that for you.
