I have no idea what development environment you are in, however leaving a
transaction open for any length of time is almost always a terrible idea.
It looks like the data in the drop down almost never changes? So read it
at application/middleware startup, and put it in some kind of list, and use
the list. (Client datasets work fine in delphi, there are plenty of lists
in java). You may want to refresh the list every day or so or at some
other timed interval.
