Hi,

I have a simple question about the db-connection. What is the best way to handle the connection in my jsp? Now I have my own class with a static method for returning the connection.
like:
public static Connection getConnection()

What happens if there are more than one call/statements at one time? Is that a "good" way to handle it? What may be better?

Thx a lot

One statement object per Connection object. Make sure they both get closed in a finally block when you are finished with them.

do you use connection pool provided by your container with the help of DataSource?

It is quite common to have multiple Statement/PreparedStatement (s) from a single Connection.

Is there a specific reason for not having more than one Statement from one Connection?

Better to have a connection pool and get the new connection .. if not, then
please do not have getConnection as a static method..instead, get a new con and close the same once db operation is performed ..

You are getting confused between a static method, which is just a class method, and a static Connection variable. A static method is fine, I believe, but the Connection variable should always be local.

Incidentally, it's a good idea that the DataSource variable should be static.
