Connection pooling is a technique for sharing server resources among various requesting client applications. It enables multiple clients to share a cached set of connection objects that provides access to Vantage. Connection pooling improves performance by eliminating the overhead associated with establishing a new connection to Vantage for each request submitted by a client application.
Trusted sessions do not change the handling of session parameters in connection pooling by default. Note the following restrictions for connection pooling with Vantage. Because it is not possible to reset a connection to Vantage, you must not change any of the following session parameters during a trusted session, because any changes to them are then inherited by the next user of the connection.
- Character set
- Default Date Format
- Transaction Isolation Level
