This is madhusudhan.
i am using websphere application developer 5.1.2 for developing strtus application.
i write JDBC connection pool code in Action Class excute() .

I received " syntax error on token "(",";" expected " in line "private Connection getConnetion()"

Please send me mail for this error.

Connection con = this.getConnection();

private Connection getConnection() throws SQLException {

Context ctx = new javax.naming.InitialContext();
System.out.println("Before DS");
DataSource ds = (DataSource) ctx.lookup("jdbc/DataSourcePPT");
System.out.println("after DS");
//Connection dbConnection = ds.getConnection();
//System.out.println("After Connetion");
catch (NamingException ne) {
System.out.println("Naming Exception"+ne);
catch (SQLException se){


catch(Exception e)
System.out.println("Error in"+e);
return ds.getConnection();

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
