Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive a notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org for resolution.

Override stale connection mapping/detection in Liberty
WebSphere Application Server traditional provides 2 different ways to override SQL exception mappings which are used to identify when a connection is stale and should be removed from the connection pool. 1) data source custom property for user defined error map override based on SQLState and error code 2) DataStoreHelper override for exception mapping
This is useful when using a database/jdbc driver that the application server does not have built-in knowledge of, as well as when using a database/jdbc driver that the application server is familiar with but does not know of all the error codes for. The user is able to fill in new mapping (and even remove mappings) so that stale connections can be properly identified and kept out of the connection pool.
Liberty does not currently have this capability. A data source property needs to be added to let users override the stale connection mappings.
