Savepoints and transactions

Howdy all,
Here's my question. Given the following code:
Connection conn = null;
SavePoint savepoint = null;

try {
conn = ConnectionPool.getConnection();
dao mydao = new mydao();
mydao.task(conn);
savepoint = conn.setSavepoint("Beginning");
conn.commit();
mydao.anotherTask(conn);
conn.commit();
mydao.finalTask(conn);
conn.commit();
} catch(Exception e) {
conn.rollback(savepoint); // try/catch removed for clarity
} finally {
conn.close(); // try/catch removed for clarity
}
If I were to rollback to this save point (which is actually back to before the first command) and then closed the connection, would the transaction be terminated or would it be dangling on the database server, waiting for a commit() or rollback() to take place?
Thanks,
Tripp
