StatelessConnectionPool Class

This class represents a pool of stateless, authenticated connections to the database.

Table 13-40 Enumerated Values Used by StatelessConnectionPool Class

Attribute Options
PoolType
  • HETEROGENEOUS is the default state; connections with different authentication contexts can be created in the same pool.

  • HOMOGENEOUS indicates that all connections in the pool will be authenticated with the username and password provided during pool creation. No proxy connections can be created. minConn and incrConn values are considered only in these HOMOGENEOUS pools.

  • NO_RLB turns off runtime load balancing in the connection pool. Can be used with both HETEROGENEOUS and HOMOGENEOUS pools.

BusyOption
  • WAIT indicates that the thread waits and blocks until the connection becomes free.

  • NOWAIT throws and error.

  • FORCEGET indicates that a new connection will be created, even when maximum number of connections is opened and all are busy.

DestroyMode
  • DEFAULT indicates that if are still active busy connections in the pool, ORA24422 error is thrown

  • SPD_FORCE indicates that the means that any busy connections in the pool will be forcefully terminated and the pool destroyed (the user will lose memory corresponding to the number of connections forcefully terminated)

getAnyTaggedConnection()

Returns a pointer to the connection object, without the restriction of a matching tag.

This method works in an environment with enabled database resident connection pooling.

During the execution of this call, the pool is first searched based on the tag provided. If a connection with the specified tag exists, it is returned to the user. If a matching connection is not available, an appropriately authenticated untagged connection (with a NULL tag) is returned. In cases where an undated connection is not free, an appropriately authenticated connection with a different tag is returned.

A getTag() call to the Connection verifies that the connection tag is received.

Syntax Description
Connection *getAnyTaggedConnection(
   string &tag="")=0;
Returns a pointer to the connection object from a homogeneous stateless connection pool, without the restriction of a matching tag; string support.
Connection* getAnyTaggedConnection(
   const UString &tag)=0; 
Returns a pointer to the connection object from a homogeneous stateless connection pool, without the restriction of a matching tag; UString support.
Connection *getAnyTaggedConnection(
   const string &userNname,
   const string &password,
   const string &tag="")=0;
Returns a pointer to the connection object from a heterogeneous stateless connection pool, without the restriction of a matching tag; string support.
Connection* getAnyTaggedConnection(
   const UString &userName, 
   const UString &Password, 
   const UString &tag)=0 ;
Returns a pointer to the connection object from a heterogeneous stateless connection pool, without the restriction of a matching tag; UString support.

Parameter Description
userName
The database username
password
The database password.
tag
User-defined type of connection requested. This parameter can be ignored if a default connection is requested.


getAnyTaggedProxyConnection()

Returns a proxy connection from a connection pool.

This method works in an environment with enabled database resident connection pooling.

During the execution of this call, the pool is first searched based on the tag provided. If a connection with the specified tag exists, it is returned to the user. If a matching connection is not available, an appropriately authenticated connection with a different tag is returned. In cases where an undated connection is not free, an appropriately authenticated connection with a different tag is returned.

Restrictions for matching the tag may be removed by passing an empty tag argument parameter.

A getTag() call to the connection verifies the connection tag received.
