We're having a problem using the JBoss 3.0 ManagedConnectionPool/NoTxCM service JCA stuff with Oracle 126.96.36.199.1. We've configured the connection using the sample Oracle-service.xml file included in the distribution.
Everything seems to work good; we can access the connection in code, we can run queries, update the database etc. The catch is, occassionally, during an update, the connection is "lost". By this I mean that the update transaction has not been committed or rolled back. From Oracle's standpoint, the transaction is still live and Oracle waits for the commit/rollback; which locks the table for selects, etc.
It was our understanding that the NoTxCM service was supposed to automatically provide the commits. We've verified that the connection is closed properly (i.e. we have a "finally" block that insures that the connection gets closed no matter what).
Incidentally, the last line in the log file when this occurs is "[org.jboss.resource.connectionmanager.IdleRemover] run: IdleRemover notifying pools, interval: 150000". So, as a test, we tried to disable the IdleTimeout stuff. Since the IdleTimeoutEnable attribute doesn't seem to exist anymore, we changed our IdleTimeoutMinutes to 0. Since we did this, we haven't had the problem.
Any ideas? Listed below is our configuration...
