I have a question which I'd appreciate any advice.
In a EJB, I have a method
public void ejbMethod()
and a ServiceLocator that return a DB connection to me using ServiceLocator.getConnection().
In the ejbMethod, I use an action object with the connection to access databse, but the connection is not release if I handle it in the action instead of the ejbMethod.
If I do the following in JBoss

What is the reason that in the 2nd snippet, the connection is not released?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
