Identifying the 'current user' when using a connection pool

We have a database that sets a column called MOD_BY = CURRENT_USER to almost
all tables on INSERT and UPDATE.

But now that the application is n-tier, and uses connection pools, the
current_user no longer reflects the 'application user'.

Is there any way to temporarily alter 'current_user' with an alias for the
duration of a transaction? IE

....<set current_user = 'application user alias'>...

Any other suggestions on how to transition end-user identity in a connection
pool environment?

Thanks, Jack

Hi All The problem:!! I want to create a temp table which is common between different users so that each user could select his rows and print them without printing others selection. All clients use the same connection string. Is there a way to identify users? I think it's possible to delete rows of a user when he logs out the program. Do I think right?

Hi there. Our .net framework 1.1 application is a complex media player that plays back video, flash, web, TV and pictures full screen. It runs on Windows XP SP2.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
