in reply to Detecting early termination by client

I'd have the system automagically send back an email saying "I'm sorry, the transaction was aborted at your request" every time the user drops the connection... in the hope that eventually they'd learn :-)

Perhaps log a "starting transaction" and "transaction complete" at either end of the process, and then periodically scan the log for started-but-not-completed...?

Update: changed subject back to something relevent.

    That is what I would like to do and I think should be the default behavior. After all if someone hits the close or stop button it's a good bet he wants the transaction halted. Unfortunately the boss does not agree.

    As a temporary measure I have taken to creating "emergency" logs for each transaction this particuar customer attempts. I spent today wrestling with SSL cetificate and Oracle AS 10g. Hopefully tomorrow I can load up teh CGI code and start experimenting.
