I have a jsp page that opens a database connection as part of its logic. The last part of the page destoys the connection. I've noticed that hitting stop on the client causes the jsp page to stop loading and a connection is left open on the server. What actually happens when a user hits stop on the browser while a jsp page is loading? Does the jsp page (servlet) finish processing the _jspservice method? Does the compiled jsp servlet still destroy itself? Is the memory used from the page released? Will the page halt like it does when a jsp:forward tag is encountered?

When the client hits stop on the browser, the http connection is broken and you probably have an IOException on the servlet side. Eventually you can put the code for closing the database connection in the exception handler, or, better, in the finally of the try/catch.
