JSP db Connection design question

Hi,

I am planning on using just JSP and Struts for my application that has an Oracle backend. I don't want to use JavaBean orDAOs because of the short timeframe. I want to know the best way to implement the database connections logic. Should I have  a database utilitly class that has getConnection and close connection methods and call this class directly in JSP when ever there is need to query or update? The appliction will run on Weblogic so I have to configure the datasource in weblogic.

Thanks in advance

I think struts provides a simple Database Pooling..Here is how i implement :

In my struts action class, i get the datasource object with :

DataSource dataSource = getDataSource(request);

and then pass the datasource object to my Database Manager class.

For example :

PageDA pageDA = new PageDA();
pageDA.deletePage( dataSource, pageId );

in th PageDA class :

public boolean deletePage( DataSource dataSource , int pageId)
{
   Connection myConnection = null;
   PreparedStatement pstmt = null;
   boolean returnB = false;

   try
   {
     myConnection = dataSource.getConnection();

     pstmt = myConnection.prepareStatement("delete from PAGE where PAGE_ID=?");
     pstmt.setInt( 1, pageId );
    if( pstmt.executeUpdate() == 1 )
    {
       returnB = true;
     }

     if( !myConnection.getAutoCommit() )
     {
       myConnection.commit();
     }
   }
   catch (SQLException sqle)
   {
     try
       {
         myConnection.rollback();
        }catch(Exception e)
       {
          e.printStackTrace();
       }
       sqle.printStackTrace();
    }
    finally
    {
       try
       {
           if( pstmt != null ) pstmt.close();
           if( myConnection != null ) myConnection.close();
        }
       catch (SQLException e)
       {
           e.printStackTrace();
       }
    }
return ( returnB );
}

hth,

Can you please give me some design ideas or an example ie where to use static method or a singleton class

class DBMgr()
{
Connection conn;    
public static Connection getConnection()
{
 // do init
return conn;
}

public static void close()
{
if (null != conn)
  conn.close();
}

}
DBMgr.getConnection()
DBMgr.close()

If I use this in JSPs will there be a synchonization issue or will every client get a new connection ?

Thanks
Vinay

Hi DASARI_R,

Just do "connection pooling java example" in google and you will find all that you want

Cheers!
