Hello guys,

I am trying to setup Oracle Connection Pooling for a webapp I am working on. I am using the following code:

I am going through R.M. Menon's book and I am a little confused between the pool and cache concepts I guess. What I mean is in the above code I am using a single pooled connection and getting logical connections from it, 10 in this case, what I am wondering is how many logical connections (Connection objects) can ride on a single PooledConnection??? I mean why have multiple physical if one can handle many logical once, what is the point of caching the physical connections? Why do we need OCI then? When am I supposed to open a new physical from the cache???

I know lots of questions but I thought I can try my luck and see what you guys have to say. I am using Java 1.5 and Oracle 10g backend with the oracle 10g jdbc driver, I need/wish to use that.
