§Configuring the JDBC pool.
The Play JDBC datasource is managed by BoneCP.
Play supports special url format for both MySQL and PostgreSQL:
# To configure MySQL db.default.url="mysql://user:password@localhost/database" # To configure PostgreSQL db.default.url="postgres://user:password@localhost/database"
In addition to the classical
password configuration properties, it also supports additional tuning parameters if you need them:
# The JDBC driver to use db.default.driver=org.h2.Driver # The JDBC url db.default.url="jdbc:h2:mem:play" # User name db.default.user=sa # Password db.default.password=secret # Set a connection's default autocommit setting db.default.autocommit=true # Set a connection's default isolation level db.default.isolation=READ_COMMITTED # In order to reduce lock contention and thus improve performance, # each incoming connection request picks off a connection from a # pool that has thread-affinity. # The higher this number, the better your performance will be for the # case when you have plenty of short-lived threads. # Beyond a certain threshold, maintenance of these pools will start # to have a negative effect on performance (and only for the case # when connections on a partition start running out). db.default.partitionCount=2 # The number of connections to create per partition. Setting this to # 5 with 3 partitions means you will have 15 unique connections to the # database. Note that BoneCP will not create all these connections in # one go but rather start off with minConnectionsPerPartition and # gradually increase connections as required. db.default.maxConnectionsPerPartition=5 # The number of initial connections, per partition. db.default.minConnectionsPerPartition=5 # When the available connections are about to run out, BoneCP will # dynamically create new ones in batches. This property controls # how many new connections to create in one go (up to a maximum of # maxConnectionsPerPartition). Note: This is a per-partition setting. db.default.acquireIncrement=1 # After attempting to acquire a connection and failing, try to # connect this number of times before giving up. db.default.acquireRetryAttempts=10 # How long to wait before attempting to obtain a # connection again after a failure. db.default.acquireRetryDelay=5 seconds # The maximum time to wait before a call # to getConnection is timed out. db.default.connectionTimeout=1 second # Idle max age db.default.idleMaxAge=10 minute # This sets the time for a connection to remain idle before sending a test query to the DB. # This is useful to prevent a DB from timing out connections on its end. db.default.idleConnectionTestPeriod=5 minutes # An initial SQL statement that is run only when # a connection is first created. db.default.initSQL="SELECT 1" # If enabled, log SQL statements being executed. db.default.logStatements=false # The maximum connection age. db.default.maxConnectionAge=1 hour # The maximum query execution time. Queries slower than this will be logged as a warning. db.default.queryExecuteTimeLimit=1 second
