In connection oriented networks, the source first establish connection with destination before sending packets. When a connection is established sequence of packets are sent on that connection which is some virtual tube or pipe. Also it is written that in connection oriented protocol, decision about route for sequence of packets can be made only once when the connection is established. (Ref: Data communication and networking, by Behrouz Forouzan)
My doubt is: TCP is connection-oriented protocol and IP use connection-less packet switched routing. So while implementing TCP with IP as network layer protocol, how routing is done. If IP decides one route when establishing connection and use it for entire communication, how it is done. Or IP is free to choose any possible route during the communication? I mean, is it possible that network layer can choose different path for different packets for same connection?
