Database connection pooling

Hi all,

I have an application that needs to process dozens of incoming messages a second.
Each message needs to be analyzed, which requires several reads/writes to a DB2 database.

For each message that I receive, I create a thread, create and open a database connection,
do the processing and close the connection.

How can I manage the connection(s) to the database more efficiently?

Here's my connection string (just in case):
"Provider=IBMDADB2; Database = db; Hostname = 192.182.162.2; Protocol = TCPIP; Port = 50000; Uid = db; Pwd = pwd"

Any help is appreciated

This is the preferred practice. According to documentation on IBM's website, you get connection pooling with DB2 the same as you do with other DBMSs. Even though you are creating a new connection object on demand, the underlying TCP connection isn't closed (right away). Creating a new connection object will use this TCP connection if it's available; otherwise a new connection will be created and added to the pool.
