      Hello,
      My app running under JBoss 4.0.4 uses Oracle DB configured with the following DS file:


      |
      |
      | <local-tx-datasource>
      | <jndi-name>jdbc/mydb</jndi-name>
      | <connection-url>jdbc:oracle:thin:@111.222.333.444:1521:oradb</connection-url>
      | <driver-class>oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver</driver-class>
      | <user-name>user</user-name>
      | pass
      | <exception-sorter-class-name>org.jboss.resource.adapter.jdbc.vendor.OracleExceptionSorter</exception-sorter-class-name>
      |
      | <type-mapping>Oracle9i</type-mapping>
      |
      | <min-pool-size>3</min-pool-size>
      | <max-pool-size>10</max-pool-size>
      | <idle-timeout-minutes>1</idle-timeout-minutes>
      | </local-tx-datasource>
      |
      |

      I was expecting every minute( or whatever interval is given in idle-timeout-minutes) a process that removes the idle connections to be run.
      This doesn't happen. I run a test that reached the maximum number of connections. I then started monitoring the connections, but none of the idle connections were removed.
      I checked my code and every connection was closed after an operation.
      Is there anything wrong with my configuration? What could be keeping these connections open?
      Thanks.
