Hi
thank you for reading my post
I have an static method that i create some JDBC connection inside it.
when ever i need a connection i call that method and the method will go tru connection creation scenario ( class.forname.....)
I have doubt that it does not create new connections and always return the same connection because the connection returns some unknown errors like : table aa does not exists..

What is task of an static method , we can call it from the class instead of creating an object of that class , does it have some other features that affect my job ?

thanks

Yes, you can create connections from static methods, although it looks like your error table aa does not exist is referring to some other problem.
