This week's book giveaways are in the Refactoring and Agile forums. We're giving away four copies each of Re-engineering Legacy Software and Docker in Action and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
Connection Pooling example appears to create more than one pool
posted 4 years ago
This is not really a Connection or jdbc question, more of a basic question (I think) from a tutorial I'm following.
The following DataAccessPool is a servlet where the init() method shown below instantiates a new ConnectionPool.
The ConnectionPool class beneath DataAccessPool creates and manages the connection pool.
Why in this example would only one ConnectionPool object be created for and shared by all servlets?
It seems to me that each time a new ConnectionPool object is instantiated by method DatabaseAccessPool.init() a new ConnectionPool object is created, eventually filling up the virtual machine with ConnectionPoolObjects.
