Java Question

Reuse java connectionpool in scala

I have a legacy Java application, and would like to reuse its database connection handling when extending the app with scala.

The existing application does this to use the database (with try/catch omitted):

Connection dbConn = NewConnectionPool.getRemotePool().getConnection();
PreparedStatement ps = dbConn.prepareStatement(someQuery);

in the scala code I tried:

class Rules {
val connHandle = NewConnectionPool.getRemotePool.getConnection
val session = connHandle.unwrap(classOf[java.sql.Connection])
def loadTagRulesFromDb(name: String = "rules"): tagRuleSet = {
//val tagRules = NamedDB('remotedb) readOnly { implicit session =>
val tagRules = DB readOnly { implicit session =>
sql"select * from databasename.messaging_routing_matchers".map(
rs => tagRule(
for (tr <- tagRules) {

and call it like:

Rules rr = new Rules();

and I get this error (both with DB and the NamedDB version) "
Connection pool is not yet initialized.(name:'
" with name either default or remotedb):

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Connection pool is not yet initialized.(name:'default)

I assume that I can get a scalikejdbc compatible connection from the BoneCP connectionHandle somehow?

EDIT: the solution is below, note that
DB readOnly etc.
should not be used since it relies on
and application.conf, which does not apply in this specific case

Accessing via a javax.sql.DataSource instance would be the best way to integrate ScalikeJDBC with existing database connections.


But you already have a raw java.sql.Connection, it's also possible to simply create a DBSession as below:

implicit val session = DBSession(conn)
sql"select * from databasename.messaging_routing_matchers".toMap.list.apply()
