How do I use the pooling features?

Post by tabsautobiz » Wed 22 Jun 2011 21:46

I'm currently creating a wcf service that will perform frequent selects on a database.

Currently I'm looking at something like this:

Code: Select all

Public Function GetInfo() as string
    Dim connection As New PgSqlConnection(connectionString)
    Dim command As New PgSqlCommand("SELECT * FROM TABLE", connection)
    Dim reader As PgSqlDataReader = command.ExecuteReader
    While reader.Read
      'do something with the data
    End While
    Return "Done"
End Function
Would this code transparently use the built-in connection pooling, or do I need to use a different approach?

Usage of the connection pooling depends on the Pooling connection string parameter. The default value: Pooling=true.
