JDBC auto-commit

Hi All,

Following is my understanding about setAutoCommit(boolean autoCommit) and setTransactionIsolation(int level) (both from java.sql.Connection ) :

'If I create a new db connection and use setAutoCommit(false), then perform some DB manipulation and closes the connection, by default the new connections will be in auto-commit mode.'

But if I am getting the connection object from the db connection pool, then performing the same operations and closes connection , what will be the status of that particular connection object instance when I use it again from the pool; will it be in 'auto-commit' mode or 'non-auto-commit' mode ?

Pls share your ideas

thanks in advance.

Hi sam,

As for i know, auto commit will be false even if we get connections from connection pool and you have to commit before closing the connection.

I agree. Here's the link:
