Hi,
 
In PRO*C precompiler prorams, we say commit work release; at the end of the program if everything is successful.
This will commit the changes to the database and then release the connection.

If you code has commit or rollback then add ' work release' and try, though i am not sure whether it will help you or not.

Thanks

you can use

ALTER SESSION CLOSE DATABASE LINK <name>;

or

DBMS_SESSION.CLOSE_DATABASE_LINK ( dblink VARCHAR2);

Refer to the url below :

http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B10501_01/appdev.920/a96612/d_sessi2.htm#1002316

in this url , search for 'This procedure closes an open database' and read the information given there.

Thanks
