3.5 Removing Connections from UCP

The setInvalid method of the ValidConnection interface indicates that a connection should be removed from the connection pool when it is closed. The method is typically used when a connection is no longer usable, such as after an exception or if the isValid method of the ValidConnection interface returns false. The method can also be used if an application deems the state on a connection to be bad. The following example demonstrates using the setInvalid method to close and remove a connection from the pool:

Connection conn = pds.getConnection();

((ValidConnection) conn).setInvalid();
