Interface ConnectionPool

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultConnectionPool, JNDIConnectionPool

public interface ConnectionPool

An interface used to build wrapper classes around existing Connection Pool libraries. Title: ConnectionPool


Method Summary
 void freeUnused()
          Start downsizeing the pool, this usally happens right after the pool has been marked as Inactive and we are removing connections that are not currently inuse.
 java.sql.Connection getConnection()
          Retrive a database connection from the pool
 boolean hasActiveConnections()
          Provide an indicator to the PoolManager when the Pool can be removed from the Pool Table.
 boolean isEnabled()
          Determine if a Connection Pool has been disabled.
 void releaseConnection(java.sql.Connection con)
          Return a connection to the pool, the connection may be closed if the pool is inactive or has exceeded the max number of free connections
 void releaseConnectionOnError(java.sql.Connection con)
          Provide a mechinism to return a connection to the pool on Error.
 void setDriver(java.lang.String d)
          The Driver and URL are the only required parmeters.
 void setMinConnections(int n)
          Set tne minimum number of connections that are to be maintained in the pool.
 void setPassword(java.lang.String p)
          The rest of the protocol parameters can eiter be passed in as just Username and Password or as a property collection.
 void setPoolEnabled(boolean flag)
          The Pool can be Enabled and Disabled.
 void setProtocol(java.util.Properties p)
          Used to pass in extra configuration options during the database connect phase.
 void setURL(java.lang.String url)
           
 void setUser(java.lang.String u)
           
 boolean testConnection()
          Test to see if the connection info is valid to make a real connection to the database.
 

Method Detail

isEnabled

public boolean isEnabled()
Determine if a Connection Pool has been disabled. If a Connection pool is disabled, then it will only manage connections that are in use.

setDriver

public void setDriver(java.lang.String d)
The Driver and URL are the only required parmeters.
Parameters:
d -  

setURL

public void setURL(java.lang.String url)
Parameters:
url -  

freeUnused

public void freeUnused()
Start downsizeing the pool, this usally happens right after the pool has been marked as Inactive and we are removing connections that are not currently inuse.

hasActiveConnections

public boolean hasActiveConnections()
Provide an indicator to the PoolManager when the Pool can be removed from the Pool Table.

setPassword

public void setPassword(java.lang.String p)
The rest of the protocol parameters can eiter be passed in as just Username and Password or as a property collection. If the property collection is used, then the sperate username and password may be ignored, it is up to the wrapper implementation to handle the situation. If the connection information changes while after the pool has been established, the wrapper implementation should ignore the change and throw an error.
Parameters:
p -  

setUser

public void setUser(java.lang.String u)
Parameters:
u -  

setMinConnections

public void setMinConnections(int n)
Set tne minimum number of connections that are to be maintained in the pool.
Parameters:
n -  

testConnection

public boolean testConnection()
Test to see if the connection info is valid to make a real connection to the database. This method may cause the pool to be crated and filled with min connections.

getConnection

public java.sql.Connection getConnection()
                                  throws java.sql.SQLException
Retrive a database connection from the pool
Throws:
java.sql.SQLException -  

releaseConnection

public void releaseConnection(java.sql.Connection con)
                       throws java.sql.SQLException
Return a connection to the pool, the connection may be closed if the pool is inactive or has exceeded the max number of free connections
Parameters:
con -  
Throws:
java.sql.SQLException -  

releaseConnectionOnError

public void releaseConnectionOnError(java.sql.Connection con)
                              throws java.sql.SQLException
Provide a mechinism to return a connection to the pool on Error. A good default behaviour is to close this connection and build a new one to replace it. Some JDBC impl's won't allow you to reuse a connection after an error occurs.
Parameters:
con -  
Throws:
java.sql.SQLException -  

setPoolEnabled

public void setPoolEnabled(boolean flag)
The Pool can be Enabled and Disabled. Disabling the pool closes all the outstanding Unused connections and any new connections will be closed upon release.
Parameters:
flag - Control the Connection Pool. If it is enabled then Connections will actuall be held around. If disabled then all unused connections will be instantly closed and as connections are released they are closed and removed from the pool.

setProtocol

public void setProtocol(java.util.Properties p)
Used to pass in extra configuration options during the database connect phase.
