WebLogic 8.1 Connection Pools - # of Connections always 0

Hello,

Just wondering if anyone could explain to me why after I set the initial number of connections for my Weblogic 8.1 connection pools to be 5, the monitor says there are 0 connections. I thought maybe it was because I was using Cloudscape, and the Cloudscape evaluation only allows 1 connection. However, I tried it with SQL Server, and I can connect, but the pool isn't opening 5 connections when I start the server.

Thanks,
Ryan

Ryan,
The connection pool opens connections as they are used. Once you start running the application with multiple users at the same time, the number of connections in the pool will increase. It doesn't happen when you just start the server.

Thanks Jeanne,

My biggest problem was that I was using the default columns in the monitoring table. I added them all, and it made much more sense because it gave me the 'Curr Capacity' column, which made it clear that it was pooling. I was looking for that value in the 'Connections' column, but like you said, connections aren't shown there unless they are actual physical connections being used. Thanks again,

Ryan
