Hello,

I am trying to control the number of initial connection when creating a connection pool (Apache-Postgres). I require 1-2 connections but i am initially receiving 4. I see that in BasicDataSource i can set the initialSize of the pool, however i do not understand how to set initialSize using PoolingDataSource.

Thanks,

Usually its in an XML file (or admin console) of where ever the pool is declared. BTW, why only 1-2? It seems like a pool that small is hardly worth putting in a pool.

Thank you for your response. What I require is a mean to set the connection size (initialSize) using Java directly, not a configuration document.

BasicDataSource allows you to create connection pool without xml config file. It has setters for the settings you would otherwise put in the config file.
BasicDataSource.setInitialSize(). Read the note in the javadoc: you have to call this method early.

Usually you leave managing the connection pol to the server, not the application code.
