Dev created a new service for our application that opened SQL connections. The catch? They never closed said connections. How this passed QA/review I've no idea, but after a few minutes on Staging the service would crash with "connection pool overflow".

I raised a urgent defect, and the devs "fix"? To up the maxConnectionPool to Int.Max!! Argh!

    This is a perfect example for when to use singletons
