' Add a ConnectionManager to the Connections collection.
Dim connMgr As ConnectionManager =  pkg.Connections.Add("ADO.NET:OLEDB") 
connMgr.Properties("RetainSameConnection").SetValue(connMgr , True)
connMgr.ConnectionString = connStr

' Aqcuire the connection.
Dim connection As Object =  connMgr.AcquireConnection(Nothing)
