Strong Authentication


TestOnBorrow when set as true via, AFM when making a connection with CA Strong Authentication Server will reach out to the CA Strong Authentication Server's connection pool to get a connection. This connection will be tested first, if it fails then the corrupted pool is destroyed and a new connection pool will be created. If the TestOnBorrow is set to false then the connection is not tested . This validation and recreating of a new pool leads to robust tested connections being used but such validation will add to some processing overhead.
