Connection Pools
Runtime Behavior of Connection Pools
Integration Server includes a connection management service that dynamically manages connections and connection pools based on configuration settings that you specify for the connection. All adapter services and adapter listeners use connection pooling.
A connection pool is a collection of connections with the same set of attributes. Integration Server maintains connection pools in memory. Connection pools improve performance by enabling adapter services to reuse open connections instead of opening new connections.
