Applies to:JDBC - Version 10.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
A JDBC application uses a connection pool. Occasionally a connection might be altered in such a way that it should not be placed back on the pool for general use.
For example a connection has opened DB links that might become stale by the time the connection is re-used.
The default call for closing the connection is: connection.close()
Since the connection is pooled, this merely places the connection back in the pool for re-use, which in this case is not suitable.
