- In this version there is number of properties
defined for the ConnectionPoolDataSource. These properties can be
used to describe how the PooledConnection objects created by DataSource
objects should be pooled.
- A new concept has been added to this API is of savepoints:
One of the useful new features is transactional savepoints. With JDBC 3.0,
the transactional model is now more flexible. Now you can start a
transaction , insert several rows in it and then create a savepoint. This
savepoint serves as a bookmark. The application can rollback to the
savepoint and then commit the group of inserts as if the updates have never
been attempted. For eg:
int rowcount=st.executeUpdate("insert into employee
int rowcoutn=st.executeUpdate("insert into salary values(20000.0);
point for inserts
int rowcount=st.executeUpdate("delete from employee");
//discard the delete statement but keeps the
//inserts are now permanent
