    Default Database Connection Lifetime

    Just a quick question. Say I have a service that accesses a database. Is it better to open/close a connection per request to the servlet, as needed? Or is it better to open a connection once, and keep it open for the duration of the application, thus sharing the connections among the requests?

    Default Re: Database Connection Lifetime

    Option 3: use a connection pool. You want to keep connections open (which the pool will take care of for you) but you do NOT want to share connections among different threads.
