- An application is deployed into 10.1.3.3 OC4J and retrieves a connection from a managed datasource to access database server:
<managed-data-source connection-pool-name="PatGbm_Services Connection Pool" jndi-name="jdbc/PatGbmServicesDS"
name="PatGbm_Services Data Source"/>
<connection-pool name="PatGbm_Services Connection Pool"
validate-connection-statement="SELECT 1 FROM DUAL">
- The problem is a connection leak that has been observed after a performance load test.
Monitoring the number of connections in use (via the em console ), we can see that there are N connections in use.
- The increase has been observed when an application is trying to allocate a JDBC connection in a global transaction and the container is calling setAutoCommit (true) on the connection . The following exception is then observed :
java.sql.SQLException : setAutoCommit method is not allowed during a global transaction.'
java.sql.SQLException: could not turn on auto-commit in an active global transaction
As for OC4J container, this unexpected call to setAutoCommit method on connection has been experience with WLS container .
