This is my code:

using (var cmd = _db.GetSqlStringCommand("Delete from tb1 where id=@Id ))
            _db.AddInParameter(cmd, "@Id", DbType.Int64, Id);
I sometimes get the following error message.
The timeout period elapsed prior to obtaining a connection from the pool. This may have occurred because all pooled connections were in use and max pool size was reached.

I not sure if the error is cause by my code above. But I don't see any Close method on connection object is invoked.

Can anyone help me understand how the connection object is managed in SqlDatabase?

Enterprise Library manages the connection for you so you don't need to close the connection. ExecuteNonQuery opens a connection and then disposes the connection. You can see the code here: .
