ASP.NET Database Connection Loss

Posted on 2011-10-05
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Apparently, the front end of our ASP.NET application cannot tell the difference between an action
that is taking a long time e.g. adding an element to the webpage or when the application has lost its connection to the database.

This can result in a user seeing the "action circles" but no action actually
taking place because the connection has been lost.

Does anyone know what is happening and how to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

    Well, it can be a lot of reasons. How do you open the connection? What are you using for data handling in general?
