Hi all,
I have a firewall which closes all the connections which are idle for 30 mins.So i have included the following connection pooling parameters inside my context file.
timeBetweenEvictionRunsMillis=300000
numTestsPerEvictionRun=20
minEvictableIdleTimeMillis= 180000
I also have maxActive=50
maxIdle=100
maxWait=-1
But still its not working.Can anybody have any suggestion in this regard.

regards,
Ajse

What server software are you using to manage the connection?

I think for most of connection pools you can setup lifetime of connection. So set it shorter than firewall setting and you should be safe. I use this approach with success.

I'm curious: Is the firewall between the servers and the outside world, or is it between segments of the internal network? The former would imply that there's JDBC traffic coming in over the Internet - I'd be interested to hear what lead to that architectural choice. If the latter, where does the need for a firewall between internal systems come from?

Hi,

I dont have any control on these issues(firewall between internal servers).Probably this kind of settings can save the data in case of any hack.
But the problem is still there and not been fixed yet.

Product companies always have problem like that. You can't dictate to customers how to configure firewall, otherwise they will get a product of your competitor which can manage such problems. I do not see lifetime for connection in your pool parameters. We used own pool and actually added this feature because met such requirements.
