hi all,
i m trying to use connection pooling in my application. it is having connection to Postgres database whose name is "PEASS"
and i also have its driver installed.

my struts-config contains datasource as follows...
<data-source key="faqPortal" type="org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSource">
<set-property property="driverClassName" value="org.postgresql.Driver" />
<set-property property="url" value="jdbc ostgresql://" />
<set-property property="maxCount" value="10" />
<set-property property="minCount" value="1" />
<set-property property="user" value="postgres" />
<set-property property="password" value="shail123@12" />


i dont know wat is the problem... i tried to rebuild all the jars and restart eclipse and all that things...
i checked the log and found the error as follows...

org.apache.commons.dbcp.SQLNestedException: Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory (The connection attempt failed.)

HTTP Status 503 - Servlet action is currently unavailable

type Status report

message Servlet action is currently unavailable

description The requested service (Servlet action is currently unavailable) is not currently available.

at first glance, it appears your sql database and your applicaiton server are sharing the same port.

can you connect to the database using the db client while your application server is running at the same time?
