I make a request to servlet which contains code to get a connection to a remote database, assign resultset data to an array, close connection, then display that array in a form. What happens if the user makes the request then closes the browser before the data is received and the close connection is never called. How can I make sure the close connection is aways ran if a connection is made?

Always close connections in a finally block.

How would this be fired if page is closed abnormally?

Finally blocks are always called. That is why you use them.
