[workaround] qt_sql_default_connection' is still in use --- again
I'm developing a small daemon, which at regular intervals (many times every hour) opens a database connection, inserts some records, and closes the connection again.
Everything works great, except every time the database connection is closed, I get the very well known "qt_sql_default_connection' is still in use" message, some small memory leak and an open connection to the database (after some time I get "Too many connections QMYSQL:").
The funny thing is : I do not have to use any query to get the error, all I have to do, is to connect to the database, and disconnect again!
I have made this small test program, which also displays the error.
I have a form with two buttons, one for connect, one for disconnect.
MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) :
void MainWindow::on_pushButton_clicked() // connect
QSqlDatabase db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QMYSQL");
void MainWindow::on_pushButton_2_clicked() // disconnect
Any ideas ?
I'm using QtCreator 5.1 and mysql 5.5.32 on Ubuntu 64 bit.

Try providing the database name (i.e. "test") to the call of the static QSqlDatabase::database() function in 'on_pushButton_2_clicked().
Well that does remove the default connection error, but now I get an "duplicate connection name 'qt_sql_default_connection', old connection removed." error when I try to reconnect !
Just a design question, why not setup the database once and only open and close it ?
That solution has crossed my mind, but because of my in-experience with this kind of long running processes (it could be running un interrupted for months), I decided this approch would be best.
What would you say is the better solution, one permanent connection, or a new one each time ?
AFAIK, you can go with one database setup at application startup and open/close the connection has needed. Just be sure that all the transaction to the database have been executed before closing the connection.
I have had the program running all night without any problems, so I think this is the way I will go.
Thank you SGaist.
Just to satisfy my curiosity, does anyone know what's wrong with my test program ?
