DBAPI Loss DB Connection

Discussion in 'Python' started by Greg Copeland, Apr 2, 2007.

  1. According to the SQLAlchemy list, the DBAPI specification does not
    define a standard error reporting mechanism which would allow for
    generic detection of loss of database connection without DB specific
    exception handling. For me, this is a requisite for robust error
    handling. Not to mention, this seeminly defeats the purpose of using
    DBAPI since one can not have a robust DB application without tethering
    it to a specific DBAPI DB implementation; which seemingly defeates the
    purpose of using a DBAPI implementation.

    Assuming what I've been told is correct, what is the proper method to
    request a revision to the DBAPI specification to specifically address
    loss of DB connection and error handling in this regard?
