    __pool= None

    def __init__(self,host='localhost',username='ploonorkut',password='19780327',schema='postx'):

       self.__connection = PySQLPool.getNewConnection(host, username, password, schema)
       PySQLPool.PySQLConnection.connection_timeout = datetime.timedelta(86400)
       self.__pool = PySQLPool.getNewPool()
       self.__pool.GetConnection(self.__connection)#line producing error

    def returnQuery(self):

        query= PySQLPool.getNewQuery(self.__connection,True)

        return query

So the actual problem is the use of you Connections class(). PySQLPool manages all this for you. The only thing you may wish to keep track off to reduce code is the PySQLConnection object returned from PySQLPool.getNewConnection().

Each thread will want to call PySQLPool.getNewQuery(PySQLConnection *). As this is what allows the thread safe locking and opening of multiple connections to happen.

Sorry for this problem. I really need to get some documentation up.

I've have started working on the Sphinx Generated Documentation to help out a bit. You can view the current build in the repo at or via checkout at

Current the index page and a getting started page are in there. I have added a few example and what not to the getting started that should get you rolling on what you need to do. I will be continuing to push out more docs as the day/weekend continues. Hopefully I should have a enough there to help figure out how this thing works.

If you run into anything confusing in the docs please let me know. So that I can fix it for everyone else, and make it a little clearer.

summary: - Version 0.3.5 ,python 2.5 ,PySQLPool.GetConnection(connObj)
