Hello,

I have a single spring context which deal with multiple databases(total 5 databases) based on requests. I have set my db pool setting as below



Now my question is , this pool settings will be for whole context or for each database. Let say i says maxidle=8 so there can maxidle=8*5  or it would be always just for all 5 Databases.

Thanks

You don't have one DBCP Connection Pool for multiple databases, you have one pool per database. Each one has its own JDBC URL, connection credentials - and pool settings.

Pools are collections of objects which are essentially identical. So a Connection to Database #1 and a Connection to Database #1 wouldn't make sense. How would you know which database you would be working with if you invoked getConnection on a pool of heterogeneous Connections?
