Here are the macros I use.  If they word-wrapped too badly, let me know
and I'll send as an attachment.

I first started using CHECK_CONNECTION which does a ping.  I think this
will help keep alive, but if you are inactive for too long the server
may disconnect you, depending on the server settings.

To get around the disconnect issue, the BEGIN_TRY_SQL has a little for
loop the tries 2 times in case of failure.  This fixed our problem when
the connection was dropped by the server.  I was already using the
macros for exception handling, to I only had to make macro changes to
apply the loop.


// helper macros
	if ( m_conn == 0 || !m_conn->connected() )\
		if( m_conn ) \
			m_conn->ping(); \
		if ( m_conn == 0 || !m_conn->connected() )\
			throw new KEPException( loadStr(
IDS_DB_NOT_CONNECTED ).c_str(), m_conn->errnum()  );\

// added retry logic
#define BEGIN_TRY_SQL for ( int sqlTries = 0; sqlTries < 2; sqlTries ++
) try {

#define END_TRY_SQL( functionName )\
		break; \
	catch (const mysqlpp::BadQuery& er) \
		int sqlErr = m_conn->errnum();\
		if ( sqlErr != CR_SERVER_LOST ) {\
			throw new KEPException( loadStrPrintf(
IDS_DB_QUERY_ERROR, functionName, er.what() ).c_str(), m_conn->errnum()
		} else {\
			LOG4CPLUS_INFO( m_logger, "Lost connection in "
<< functionName << " retrying" ); }\
	catch (const mysqlpp::BadConversion& er) \
		throw new KEPException( loadStrPrintf(
IDS_DB_CONVERSION_ERROR, functionName, er.what(), er.retrieved,
er.actual_size ).c_str(), m_conn->errnum() );\
	catch (const mysqlpp::Exception& er) \
		throw new KEPException( loadStrPrintf( IDS_DB_ERROR,
functionName, er.what() ).c_str(), m_conn->errnum() );\

Subject: Stay connected with DB


My application should stay connected with the Mysql Server or
reconnected on diconnect. It stays connected for a day or so, but always
after a night (where probably not querys where started) the connections
are lost. 
Im trying to use Connection::ping for possibly reconnect, before i start
some MySQL Work, but it doesn't help. I also create a new query object
after pinging. (Query objects are just alive for a short time in my

What is the preferred solution to keep connections alive or reconnect
them automaticly?

Kind Regards
Manuel Jung
