Good day for all! After closing connection to ASA9 server from my program with this code:

_cn = new AsaConnection();


_cn = null;

In sybase central connection showed in Connected users tab with last requst COMMIT, and disappears only after closing the program. It normally? How can I really close connection without closing program? Garbage collection not helps...

This is the expected behaviour - connection pooling is enabled on ADO.NET connections by default. If you wish to disable this behaviour (although it's enabled for performance reasons), you can add POOLING=FALSE to your connection string.

Might be connection pooling (the connection is waiting to be reused) To double check, try a loop to do your stuff >32767 times, if you run out of connections I would say it is a bug.
