We have an External Business Component to an external DB2 Database. This works fine, i.e. we can display the data in the Siebel UI. However, we are finding that once a connection is made to the external database, it persists until the user logs off. This is causing us a problem in the external database, as we have over 250 idle connections.

Is there any way to ensure that after each request through the EBC, that the connection is disconnected? Is there any way to timeout the connection?
