UCP and RAC

If you configure a Gridlink Datasource with the wrong ServiceName, you might get:

java.sql.SQLException: Pool connect failed : java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.Boolean cannot be cast to oracle.ucp.jdbc.oracle.OracleConnectionAffinityContext

This is possibly one of the weirdest exceptions I have ever seen...spooky and unreal...
It turns out that the root cause could also be that tablespace is full, or other DB-related issues.... but it's NOT a WLS or Application issue (apart from being a useless error message...)

If you wonder what the "ucp" means, it's a RAC-specific implementation of the more traditional connection pool : https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/java.112/e12265/intro.htm#BABDIDGD

The way I understand it is that a UCP is a RAC-specific Connection Pool service running UNDER the WebLogic connection pool, and handling RAC-specific features like seamless recovery from node failures.

PS the whole stacktrace is:

Might be caused because of:
Caused by: oracle.net.ns.NetException: Listener refused the connection with the following error:
ORA-12516, TNS:listener could not find available handler with matching protocol stack
