Re: data guard fast start failover

I'll find out more from our WebLogic SME, but we're using WebLogic multi-pools (multi-datasources?), ie each server running WebLogic has three connection pools -- one for each of the RAC instances. The connections do re-connect automatically after failover. We're finding that it takes 60-90 seconds for failover and reconnect. I believe that we are using WebLogic XA transactions but I'll verify.
