I have a simple question about database sessions. The value of parameter "sessions" is set to 500 and the users connect to database through an application server(Jboss). There are more than 500 users connect to the database through application.

My question is, how more than 500 users can connect to the database without any issue, if we set the value of "sessions" parameter to 500?

1) Is it a RAC Server or any other Cluster ?
2) What is your connection pooling method?
3) How do you know that more than 500 are connected ?

1) If it is RAC you can have 500 sessions per instance
2) If your application server use a pool of connections you can have more than 500 sessions on your application server and less than that on your instance
3) Good question
