I found that when the minIdle is configured then during loads, common pool creates more number of connections it will be greater than maxActive.
When I had following settings:
maxActive = 50
maxIdle = 30
testOnBorrow = true
validationQuery='select 1 from dual'
Number of connections in the pool went upto 121. (found thru netstat)
When I changed minIdle to 15 and did my load test connecitons in the pool went upto 66
Looks like maxActive is getting bypassed with minIdle.
When I changed minIdle to 10 and maxActive to 30 and maxIdle to 30 then number of connections went upto 40.
Can someone please throw light on what is going on here? I am using DBCP 1.2.1 and common pool 1.3.
