NameTypeDefaultDescription

agedTimeout

A period of time with second precision

-1

Amount of time before a connection can be discarded by pool maintenance. A value of -1 disables this timeout. A value of 0 discards every connection, which disables connection pooling. Specify a positive integer followed by a unit of time, which can be hours (h), minutes (m), or seconds (s). For example, specify 30 seconds as 30s. You can include multiple values in a single entry. For example, 1m30s is equivalent to 90 seconds.

connectionTimeout

A period of time with second precision

30s

Amount of time after which a connection request times out. A value of -1 disables this timeout. Specify a positive integer followed by a unit of time, which can be hours (h), minutes (m), or seconds (s). For example, specify 30 seconds as 30s. You can include multiple values in a single entry. For example, 1m30s is equivalent to 90 seconds.

maxIdleTime

A period of time with second precision

30m

Amount of time a connection can be unused or idle until it can be discarded during pool maintenance, if doing so does not reduce the pool below the minimum size. A value of -1 disables this timeout. Specify a positive integer followed by a unit of time, which can be hours (h), minutes (m), or seconds (s). For example, specify 30 seconds as 30s. You can include multiple values in a single entry. For example, 1m30s is equivalent to 90 seconds.

maxPoolSize

int
Min: 0

50

Maximum number of physical connections for a pool. A value of 0 means unlimited.

minPoolSize

int
Min: 0

Minimum number of physical connections to maintain in the pool. The pool is not pre-populated. Aged timeout can override the minimum.

purgePolicy

  • EntirePool

  • FailingConnectionOnly

  • ValidateAllConnections

EntirePool

Specifies which connections to destroy when a stale connection is detected in a pool.
EntirePool
When a stale connection is detected, all connections in the pool are marked stale, and when no longer in use, are closed.
FailingConnectionOnly
When a stale connection is detected, only the connection which was found to be bad is closed.
ValidateAllConnections
When a stale connection is detected, connections are tested and those found to be bad are closed.

reapTime

A period of time with second precision

3m

Amount of time between runs of the pool maintenance thread. A value of -1 disables pool maintenance. Specify a positive integer followed by a unit of time, which can be hours (h), minutes (m), or seconds (s). For example, specify 30 seconds as 30s. You can include multiple values in a single entry. For example, 1m30s is equivalent to 90 seconds.

Advanced Properties

enableSharingForDirectLookups

boolean

true

If set to true, connections are shared. If set to false, connections are unshared.

maxConnectionsPerThread

int
Min: 0

Limits the number of open connections on each thread.

numConnectionsPerThreadLocal

int
Min: 0

Caches the specified number of connections for each thread.

containerAuthData

Default authentication data for container managed authentication that applies when bindings do not specify an authentication-alias for a resource reference with res-auth=CONTAINER.

NameTypeDefaultDescription
