Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Application Development Guide

Connection Pooling

The GlassFish 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.

To use the command line, use the asadmin create-connector-connection-pool command to manage the pool.

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.

The addresslist-behavior JMS service attribute can be set to priority. This means that the first broker in the AddressList is selected first.

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 GlassFish Server.
