I am pretty confused about closing connection with Connection pooling and without connection pooling (direct connection ). can there be anybody who would explain me the difference between the two ? (I'm using oracle 10g).
When you are using a connection pool, then it contains an array or collection of pre-build connections. In order to use the connection, we borrow connection from the pool and after use we return the connection back. But in normal connection, we build it at the time of use and then close.
