For how long will an ASP.NET process hold resources?

Hello everyone,

I was believing that the life of ASP.NET objects will end as soon as the
origionating Page object transmitted the response stream and frees, even if
you haven't explicitly free the objects, but now I'm not quite sure.

It happened to me that I have a ASP.NET page that'll read images from
the server to generate another image. For quick hand I've used the code like
this in order to "save" one variable declaration. (The code resides in
another object the Page creates.)

g.DrawImage(new System.Drawing. Bitmap(ImgFileP ath1), 0, 0, w1, h1);

And soon I found the w3wp.exe continuously locks any files opened this
way. Now I've changed the program to the following to get rid of the
problem.

pic1 = new System.Drawing. Bitmap(ImgFileP ath1);
g.DrawImage(pic 1, 0, 0, w1, h1);
pic1.Dispose();

Now I wonders if file handles will not be freed, will memory or other
system resources be hold - perhep until the global GC process finally
collects them?

Thanks for any inputs.

Regards,
Lau Lei Cheong

In my experience when ever working with any kind of stream and using
any kind of COM object it is best to explicitly close or dispose of the
objects.

We observed behavior of a message queue that did not release resources
until dispose was called, this was caused by (if I remember correctly)
the .Net message queue holding onto COM resources

As a general rule, anything that implements IDisposable should ALWAYS be
disposed. In the case of file IO, it should be closed and disposed as
quickly as possible.

Hi There, I have an update statement to update a field of a table (~15,000,000 records). It took me around 3 hours to finish 2 weeks ago. After that no one touched the server and no configuration changed. Until yesterday, I re-ran it again and it took me more than 18hrs and still not yet finished!!! What's wrong with it? I can ran it successfully before. I have tried two times but the result was still the same.

To the client, this is just an ID for the object they wish to access. From then on,...

Hi I wrote an application server (a remoting sinlgeton), where processes must be stopped in very rare cases, done thru a Thread.Abort(). Occasionally, and only after a Thread.Abort(), this component becomes instabile, throwing a Windows like error (access violation on 0x00000002), not an framework exception. The component and all of its subcomponents are 100% managed code. What could go wrong with Thread.Abort()? Thanks for any hints.
