Setting readOnly on database connections

Björn Raupach
Hi there,

this is a follow up on a question I asked two years ago. How time flies!

We are using Amazon Aurora Database with the MariaDB Connector/J. This jdbc driver has a nice feature to distribute load on readers. All you need to do is setReadOnly(true) on the JDBC connection. We use this a lot, but unfortunately this yields to ugly code. Maybe someone has an idea to improve things?

Here is an example, how parts of our code looks like:

public List<Foo> selectAll() {
  Connection con = null;
  try (SqlSession session = sqlSessionFactory.openSession()) {
    con = session.getConnection();
    FooMapper mapper = session.getMapper(FooMapper.class);
    return mapper.selectAll();
  } catch (SQLException e) {
    throw new RuntimeException(e);
  } finally {
    if (con != null) {
      try {
      } catch (SQLException ignored) {}

This is rather ugly and far from the usual, clean pattern MyBatis provides. Does anyone know a better way to approach this?

kind regards and thank you all for keeping MyBatis up and running!
