Oracle DataSource Class Difference


I was wondering what is the difference between using in my jdbc connection one of the following:

1 - oracle.jdbc.pool.OracleDataSource
2 - oracle.jdbc.pool.OracleConnectionPoolDataSource

I’m using Oracle 9i and jdbc driver



My WebMethods version is 7.1.1


One implements pooling and the other one doesn’t. For use with the JDBC Adapter, just use the regular OracleDataSource since pooling is handled by the webMethods adapter framework itself.
