Performance and scalability: User closing the browser while the request hasn't completed

  1. All,


       The question I had is, if a user initates a transaction (say search), and while the process is running in the app server waiting for the DB to respond back, the user closes the browser. What happens to the request once the DB responds back and the middle tier is ready to present the info back to the user.





  2. The server will still process the request. But when the it tries to send the reponse back it gets an IOException that the reponse stream is not available (since the browser has been closed by the user).
