Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.2 Developer's Guide

Connection Pooling

The Application Server pools JMS connections automatically.

To dynamically modify connection pool properties using the Administration Console, go to either the Connection Factories page (see Creating JMS Resources: Destinations and Connection Factories) or the Connector Connection Pools page (see Deploying and Configuring a Stand-Alone Connector Module).

To use the command line, use the asadmin create-connector-connection-pool command to manage the pool (see Deploying and Configuring a Stand-Alone Connector Module.

The addresslist-behavior JMS service attribute is set to random by default. This means that each ManagedConnection (physical connection) created from the ManagedConnectionFactory selects its primary broker in a random way from the AddressList.

When a JMS connection pool is created, there is one ManagedConnectionFactory instance associated with it. If you configure the AddressList as a ManagedConnectionFactory property, the AddressList configuration in the ManagedConnectionFactory takes precedence over the one defined in the Application Server.
