This command tests that a connection pool is usable for both JDBC connection pools and connector connection pools. For example, if you create a new JDBC connection pool for use with an application that is expected to be deployed, before deploying the application, the previously created pool is tested with this command.
Either a JDBC or connector connectionpool with authentication can be created. You can either use a –property option to specify user, password, or other connection information using the command line, or specify the connection information in the xml descriptor file.
Before pinging a connection pool, you must create the connection pool with authentication and ensure that the enterprise server or database is started.
The authorized domain application server administrative username.
The ––password option is deprecated. Use ––passwordfile instead.
This option replaces the –– password option. Using the ––password option on the command line or through the environment is deprecated. The ––passwordfile option specifies the name of a file containing the password entries in a specified format. The entry for the password must have the AS_ADMIN_ prefix followed by the password name in capital letters. For example, to specify the domain application server password, use an entry with the following format: AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=password, where password is the actual administrator password. Other passwords that can be specified include AS_ADMIN_MAPPEDPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_SAVEDMASTERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_MQPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD, and so on.
The machine name where the domain application server is running. The default value is localhost.
The port number of the domain application server listening for administration requests. The default port number for Platform Edition is 4848. The default port number for Enterprise Edition is 4849.
If set to true, uses SSL/TLS to communicate with the domain application server.
Indicates that any output data must be very concise, typically avoiding human-friendly sentences and favoring well-formatted data for consumption by a script. Default is false.
Setting to true will echo the command line statement on the standard output. Default is false.
If set to true (default), only the required password options are prompted.
