Subject Re: [IB-Java] Build on Windows

I was trying to give instructions yesterday on this list on how a jboss
ConnectionManager could be used standalone pooling. I have some problems
with the current state of the jboss ConnectionManagers, however they should
work fine for anything but very high load situations. I'm hoping to find
time to rewrite them, but it is not at the top of my list.

(problems are: (1)if the pool is all checked out with requests blocking,
blocking requests can wait forever, as returned connections can get handed
out to new requests. (2) the pooling code is too complicated and has too
much speculative functionality and too many parameters for the purpose of a
connection pool. It may be great for something else, but it is too hard to
fix problems (see 1) with its current complexity)

Thats enough of mixing the jboss and firebird lists;-)
