Hi Guru

The maximum connection pool limit in the connection of a webservices does not work. 

If I recall the code more than once, the number of connections increases infinitely even if I set the limit to 10.

Any idea to solve the problem?

Thanks in advance for the answers





Oracle Database:
Oracle Client:
IIS: 10.0.14393.0
Operating system: W2016
Powerbuilder: 2017r3

The web service is as follows:

We are in the presence of a solo user object.
In the constructor event it connects with oracle
In the destructive event it does the disconnect with oracle
In a method it does a select on the oracle DB.
DBParm: DBParm = "CommitOnDisconnect = 'No', PBCatalogOwner = 'pgmr', DelimitIdentifier = 'No', Pooling = 'Session Pooling', CSMax = 10, SessionHomogeneous = 'Yes'"



The client program has a command button with this code:
nc_progenamws_interface u_soap
soapconnection s_conn
long li_ret
double l_

s_conn = create soapconnection

li_ret = s_conn.createinstance (u_soap, "nc_progenamws_interface")

ld_ = u_soap.of_dll ()
destroy (s_conn)

I resolve the case in this way:


Oracle® server connection pool:



Oracle® client connection pool (dbparm setting):

Pooling=’Connection Pooling’,CSMax=10 




Response delay
The ws query is slow due to attempts to resolve the NetBios OCI record from the IIS server.
The implemented work-around was to enable local record resolution by setting the file in the lmhosts file
following record: OCI

I really think you should be using the new C# Web service feature of PB 2019. From what I remember the old Sybase .NET stuff didn’t support connection pooling of the .NET framework.

I remember the promise you made to me at the 'Appeon Elevate 2018' during dinner.

Remember that I have to be able to consume it from Java.

Remember that I must be able to create a connection pool with Oracle.

I wait for the new solution like water in the desert.

Try new C# Web API and then let’s see.

Hi Gimmy;

  I am a bit confused as you were first talking about a Web Service connection cache - yet, you show a DB Connection cache instead in your example code.

  The Web Service connection cache is controlled via its "Cache" setting

conn.UseConnectionCache (boolean cache)

Also, try now to destroy your SOAP Connection each time. Leave it instantiated. You only need to Destroy it when the APP no longer needs it (ie: closing).


Regards ... Chris

Got it!

Then the key is to use ADO.Net connectivity within your PB Web Service(s) to pool DB connections within the IIS realm.

Thanks Chris.

Are there any particular settings for connecting or for oracle to get to my goal?

(Examples? documentation? tips and trick? )

Not that I am aware of for Oracle. However, I am not an Oracle guru either. Hopefully, someone else will jump in here on this thread who has some "hands on" Oracle experience in this area with some more words of wisdom on ADO.net connections. In the mean time, some Googling around might be prudent.
