The "validationInterval" parameter works prior to other connection validation on Tomcat

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • It takes long time to get healthy connection after DBMS is down and all pooled connection are staled.
  • How to keep valid pooled connections in case the connection become invalid due to network/DBMS down?
  • I configured Tomcat with both "testOnBorrow" and "testWhileIdle" but it takes more time than I expected.
  • Can the connection pool be configured to reload Datasource or JDBC pool connection in case DBMS down?
