Understanding DB Connection Pools: Essential Knowledge for Web Developers

Typical data-driven web apps need a Database (DB) [...]

Why Do We Need DB Connection Pools?

Typical data-driven web apps need a Database (DB) connection to render almost every page or to serve every API call. For scalability reasons, Web Server and Database servers are hosted on different Machines. In such scenario, obtaining a new DB connection is a potentially expensive task. This process of acquiring a new DB connection increases the latency of your pages and makes your web app slow.

DB Connection Pools Solve This Problem

In Java web applications DB connection pools are provided as libraries. The DB connection pool manager keeps a number of DB connections open in memory. When the data access code closes a connection, the connection pool manager doesn’t close the connection, instead, it returns it to the pool. When the next call requests a connection, it returns an unused connection from the pool, rather than creating a new one. This improves the latency of your application.

DB Connection Pool Configuration

Apart from essential connection properties such as DB username, password, host, port, etc., a Database connection pool typically has following 3 properties:

  • Minimum Number of Connections: This is the number of connections the pool keeps in memory as soon as it is created. It will try to ensure that at least these many connections are available to your application.

  • Maximum Number of Connections: This is the maximum number of connections the DB connection will keep in memory. Once your application reaches this numbers, further calls to obtain connections must wait till previous calls are done.

  • Max Idle Number of Connections: As specified before, the connection pool keeps connections in memory. But if it finds that some connections are idle and it already has more than minimum number of connections then it tries to close these idle connections, so that some other program can use them.

Micromobility: The Next Wave Of Eco-Friendly Transportation

Micromobility is gradually becoming popular across [...]

You must have seen people traveling on e-bikes and e-scooters in cities like California and New York. If you are wondering about this new trend, it’s called micromobility and aims to solve the transportation problems of urban spaces and cities. 

Micromobility generally refers to short commutes of less than 5 miles and vehicles that don’t go beyond 15 miles/hour. The scooters and bikes use clean energy like rechargeable batteries to fight climate change and provide a sustainable means of transport. 

The micromobility market is expected to grow to $300 billion by 2030 in the USA alone. In fact, Micromobility startups have already pumped in $5.7 billion into the industry and looking to capture new cities and urban spaces around the world. 

Today, we will explore the trend, its advantages, challenges and the future of micromobility. 

The Factors Behind the Growth of Micromobility

Micromobility is gradually becoming popular across the world for its convenience an environment friendliness. Let’s go over some factors which have directly contributed to the growth of micromobility.

  • Last Mile Transport

    The last mile transport has always remained a challenge for urban spaces. City planners have long debated what to adopt to provide a cost-effective means of short transportation. Shared Mobility has emerged as one of the cheapest and fastest ways of reaching from point A to point B. In fact, in USA, 60% of all trips are 5 miles or less- providing a great opportunity for the growth of micromobility.

  • Cheaper Mode of Travel

    It takes only a few dollars to ride e-bikes or e-scooters. The charges are much lesser compared to cabs and traditional transportation modes. So cheap rates is also a growth factor for micromobility.

  • Fast and Easy

    Riding a bike or scooter doesn’t need any special skills or licenses. You can just unlock a bike with your mobile app and take it for a spin. It’s also much faster to navigate the traffic on congested roads in a bike than a car. As a result, you can travel much faster in congested spaces. 

  • Environment-Friendly

    One of the most significant factors for the popularity of micromobility is environment friendliness. You are not burning any fossil fuel but relying on clean energy that creates zero pollution. Micromobility becomes the preferred option as more people become conscious about saving the planet. 

  • Smart Cities

    Planned cities that focus on energy efficiency and green initiatives have also fueled the growth of micromobility. Smart cities are increasingly adopting greener modes of transport like e-bikes and e-scooters, contributing to the spread of micromobility.
