I want to know the any dummy operation which will check integrity.
I don't want execute query .I am using isReadOnly() and isclosed() but they can't check integrity of connection.
So any body please tellme any lightweight operation to check integrity.

Why don't you want to run a query? It could be a "dummy" query. For example, in Oracle you could do a query on the dual table which doesn't result in a table scan.

I don't know of a way of checking a connection is good without actually connecting. You could do a query on table structure/metadata, but that is likely to take longer than running a tiny query.
