SQL Relay - Database Connection Pool library with API available in all programming languages

  •        3738

SQL Relay is a persistent database connection pooling, proxying and load balancing system for Unix and Linux supporting ODBC, and all major databases. It has APIs for C, C++, ODBC, Perl, Perl-DBI, Python, Python-DB, Zope, PHP, Ruby, Ruby-DBI, Java, TCL and Erlang, drop-in replacement libraries for MySQL and PostgreSQL clients.

The APIs support advanced database operations such as bind variables, multi-row fetches, client-side result set caching and suspended transactions. It is ideal for speeding up database-driven web-based applications, accessing databases from unsupported platforms, migrating between databases, distributing access to replicated databases and throttling database access.

DBCP - Java Database Connection Pooling library

Creating a new connection for each user can be time consuming (often requiring multiple seconds of clock time), in order to perform a database transaction that might take milliseconds. Opening a connection per user can be unfeasible in a publicly-hosted Internet application where the number of simultaneous users can be very large. Accordingly, developers often wish to share a "pool" of open connections between all of the application's current users.
