Hi,

I currently hold SCJP 6 certification. Am I eligible to go for this upgrade to Java 7 ?

Thanks.
Hi,

I have an application where I have written some code to download a file onto the user's system on the click of a link.

The problem is until recently, it used to work perfectly, but since yesterday, I see an Exception whenever I click that link. The funny part is that the same works perfectly well on my dev/uat servers, and even on other developers' machines.
I tried downloading a fresh copy of JBoss AS and running the app from within the fresh copy, but to no avail.

Any pointers ? Here is the stack trace-

can you tell specifically, what are the errors you receive ?
Hi,

As per my understanding, the problem was not caused by "not using connection pooling". If you've exhausted your connections, then most certainly, it is caused by the application not releasing the connection(s) by closing them appropriately.

You are right when you say that if you were using connection pooling, this problem would not have occurred. This is because the Pool Management Program on the AS takes care of closing a connection, even if your program doesn't. You can see this in action in JBoss, where it produces a stack trace every time it closes a connection for you ( I don't know if OAS does the same ).

The max number of connections is not unlimited, but set as a parameter in the configuration of the DB Server. However, the number of available connections is totally independent of whether you're using Connection Pooling or not. You must understand that Connection Pooling Program is nothing but the same JDBC code, with a wrapper around it to manage the connections more efficiently, freeing you from the headache of doing the same ( which could be error prone as in this case ).

Hope this helps...
