I am running a Internet wc Server app that relies heavy on ODBC data. To keep connection overhead down to a minimum I init the var=sqlconnect() when the wc server starts up I then reference the var throughout. My problem is when the Unix Box (ODBC Data Source)goes down or is rebooted I lose the connection and this results in an error on the next call. What I am looking for is a method to test the ConnectionHandle from time to time and if it dosn't exsist re-establish it I have tried several different ways to do this and none of them work very well. Any suggestions??
