- All Superinterfaces:
- All Known Implementing Classes:
- public interface SmartDataSource
- extends javax.sql.DataSource
Interface to be implemented by classes that can provide a connection to
a relational database. Extends the javax.sql.DataSource interface
to allow classes using it to query whether or not the connection should
be closed after a given operation. This can sometimes be
useful for efficiency, if we know that we want to reuse

Should we close this connection, obtained from this factory?

- Should we close this connection, obtained from this factory?
Code that uses connections from the factory should always
use code like
in a finally block.
However, the JdbcTemplate class in this package should
take care of closing JDBC connections, freeing
application code of this responsibility.
conn - connection, which should have been obtained
from this data source, to check closure status of
