When are New Cached Connections Created after Database Sessions are Killed and ORA-00028 Occurs?

(Doc ID 434089.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 14, 2018

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 10.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


All the database sessions for the connections in a connection cache are killed. Then the application gets an invalid connections from the cache. When the application tries to use the connection an "ORA-00028: your session has been killed" error occurs. You expect this ORA-00028.

However when the application gets another connection and tries to use it another ORA-00028 occurs. You expected a new, good connection - not a second ORA-00028.
