Hi all,

I finally managed to connect to Postgres from Squeak and now shaping my code to be nice :-)

I red http://www.techgame.net/projects/Seaside/wiki/UsingGOODS and found it useful,
So now i have lazy initialization of my PostgreSQL connection as article suggested
and have one connection to DB per Session so i can easily have complex commits/rollbacks
which are hardly possible unless you use Seaside.

The question is where to put PostgreSQL disconnect code ?

I tried to overwrite Session>>expire but it never called (Yes i waited 600 seconds to check it).

Example in the doc says
withEscapeContinuation: aBlock
   ^ (self db) commitWithRetry: [super withEscapeContinuation: aBlock]

But it is unclear for me what it is and when it get called.

Thank you !
