Release Notes: Some memory leaks were repaired. Handling of the unlocked-locked object transitions was also repaired. An additional ClassLoader fix which is relevant in deployment scenarios that require use of the System ClassLoader was added. The ability to retrieve the raw physical connection through the DataSource client-side handle was added.
Release Notes: JMX is optional, which circumvents occasional ClassLoader problems that pop up when used with Tomcat and JUnit. Improved performance of pool requests/responses, fixes for metadata and object return notification that were skewing the number of unavailable objects, a couple of new optional elements to the XML config, and a handful of minor additional bugfixes.
Release Notes: A synchronization issue with the thread that automatically returns lost and timed-out objects to their pools has been fixed. A new ResultSetMetaData implementation that corrects problems with several drivers has been added, as well as new configurable elements to handle super heavy load and validation. There are various other minor fixes.
Release Notes: Fixes for a ClassLoader problem causing InstanceAlreadyExists errors which made its appear as if PoolMan couldn't locate your pool in the XML, and a new third-party JAR required for installation.
Release Notes: This release rearchitects the internal frameworks to integrate JMX-based management and the Web admin agent for pools, replaces metadata with XML representation, and adds tons of parameters, new docs, a new Web app, and many bugfixes.
Release Notes: Numerous type-related fixes to eliminate ClassCastExceptions with esoteric database types, a new initialConnections parameter, and a few other minor additions. Unless you're facing odd ClassCastExceptions, consider this a simple maintenance release.
Release Notes: The virtual JDBC driver implementation now provides scrollable, updatable ResultSets. The auto-return functionality for all connections and statements is improved, the DataSource implementation has been streamlined, and the SQL cache has been tuned for better performance. New servlet and JSP clients are included.
Release Notes: Improvements to the daemon object checker and auto-returner thread model, repairs for minor iterator exceptions and other occasional NullPointers, and propogation of SQLExceptions upwards to the application level.
Release Notes: Initial freshmeat announcement; fixes for performance problems with the SQL query-results cache and simpler configuration of the cache's usage, size, and refresh rate.
