i put in the deploy folder the sybase-ds.xml for configuring the DB connection pool (i added a minimum pool size of 5 connections)
the deployment was ok (no exceptions) eventhough i did not change the URL or user/password (and we have different URL of course).
so my question is when exactly does JBoss try to connect to the DB. apperantly the minimum size i configured did not trigger JBoss to connect to the DB because he would fail doing so due to the wrong URL.
can anyone shed some light on this?
thanks in advance.
I think the connections are still first created as and when they are required.
The minimum pool size just stops the number of connections dropping below that level but does not cause them to be created in advance.
