This week's book giveaways are in the Refactoring and Agile forums. We're giving away four copies each of Re-engineering Legacy Software and Docker in Action and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
I have a quick question on the servlet behaviour. If the browser is opened to access some information of a website, the servlet is called to retrieve something from the database. It could take long time to retrieve data from the database. If I close the browser at that moment, will the servlet be killed and stop retrieving data from the database?
