Figure 6-3 Pool configuration
After you define a connection pool, you may associate it with many different Integration
Objects. A copy of the connection pool becomes part of each application that includes one of
these Integration Objects, after the application is assembled in Application Integrator.
6.2.3 Information specified in a connection pool
A connection pool specifies several kinds of information, including:
Data that allows your Host Publisher application to connect to a host. For Host Access
Integration Objects, this data includes the host name. For Database Access Integration
Objects, it includes the URL of the database.
Whether connection pooling is enabled. Connection pooling is a method of keeping a
connection to a host open for many data transactions, instead of opening and closing a
connection with each new request. Connection pooling is designed to reduce the
response time between a request from a client browser and the display of the requested
information on a Web page. See 6.2.4, “Enabling and disabling connection pooling” on
page 146, for more information.
a user list. User lists contain information about accounts (user IDs) that a Host
Publisher application can use to access a host or database. Each entry in a user list
includes a user ID, password, and description of the account.
Connect and disconnect macros (in Host Access only).
