One policy I follow is to always do a COMMIT or ROLLBACK at the end of each
HTTP request, so that I do not have any database resources occupied while
the user is looking at the response page.  Depending upon the nature of your
transactions, that means you might need to keep state information about the
current operation in the user's session, or in "pending" tables in the
database, until the user completes the entire operation.

This approach is almost a requirement for most connection pool
implementations, because some other user's request will be the next one to
use the connection you're using, and therefore would share any outstanding
database transaction.
