These quiz questions are designed to test your knowledge of the material covered in this chapter. The answers to the quiz questions can be found in Appendix A, "Answers to Quizzes."
When is a connection pool entry established?
True or false: Connection pooling is automatically turned off for .NET.
What must you do every time in coding to make sure that you and others can take advantage of the connection pool in subsequent processing?
What must match exactly for the application to draw on an already established connection pool entry?
What performance object can you use to monitor usage of connection pooling?
Part I: Modify the 17conpool.vb code to request a minimum pool size of 20 and a maximum pool size of 200 for both connection strings. Monitor the behavior of these changes using Performance Monitor.
Part II: The 17conpool.vb code uses the .NET SQL Server data provider. Recode this program to use the OLE DB data provider instead.
