Commons DBCP example source code file (index.xml)

This example Commons DBCP source code file (index.xml) is included in the "Java Source Code Warehouse" project. The intent of this project is to help you "Learn Java by Example" TM.

<section name="The DBCP Component">

<p>Many Apache projects support interaction with a relational database.
Creating a new connection for each user can be time consuming (often
requiring multiple seconds of clock time), in order to perform a database
transaction that might take milliseconds.  Opening a connection per user
can be unfeasible in a publicly-hosted Internet application where the
number of simultaneous users can be very large.  Accordingly, developers
often wish to share a "pool" of open connections between all of the
application's current users.  The number of users actually performing
a request at any given time is usually a very small percentage of the
total number of active users, and during request processing is the only
time that a database connection is required.  The application itself logs
into the DBMS, and handles any user account issues internally.</p>

<p>There are several Database Connection Pools already available, both
within Apache products and elsewhere.  This Commons package provides an
opportunity to coordinate the efforts required to create and maintain an
efficient, feature-rich package under the ASF license.</p>

<p>The commons-dbcp package relies on code in the
<code>commons-pool package to provide the underlying object pool
mechanisms that it utilizes.</p>

<p>DBCP now comes in two different versions, one to support JDBC 3
and one to support JDBC 4.  Here is how it works:
<li>DBCP 1.4 compiles and runs under JDK 1.6 only (JDBC 4)
<li>DBCP 1.3 compiles and runs under JDK 1.4-1.5 only (JDBC 3)
<p>DBCP 1.4 binaries should be used by applications running under JDK 1.6.

<p>DBCP 1.3 should be used when running under JDK 1.4 or 1.5.

<p>There is no difference in the codebase supporting these two versions, other than that the code implementing methods added to support JDBC 4 has been filtered out of the DBCP 1.3 sources.</p> </section> <section name="Releases"> <p> See the <a href="downloads.html">downloads page for information on obtaining releases. </p> </section> <section name="Documentation"> <p>The <a href="apidocs/index.html">JavaDoc API documents are available online. In particular, you should read the package overview of the <code>org.apache.commons.dbcp package for an overview of how to use DBCP.</p> <p>There are <a href="">several examples of using DBCP available.</p> </section> </body> </document>
