Connection Pooling and Caching
In this chapter, you will learn about connection pooling and caching, and how they can improve performance of your application. We'll first look at Oracle9i connection pooling and the sample connection caching implementation provided by Oracle. We'll then cover the new and improved implicit connection caching in Oracle 10g. Finally, we'll examine the 10g implementation of OCI driver connection pooling, a feature also available with Oracle9i.
But first, let's start with a little background on connections and sessions that will help you better understand the remainder of this chapter.
