I have recently upgraded a custom app to sharepoint 2010. The same code worked fine with sharepoint 2007. The error that is being thrown is "Thread was being aborted". The stack trace is

at SNIReadSync(SNI_Conn* , SNI_Packet** , Int32 ) at SNINativeMethodWrapper.SNIReadSync(SafeHandle pConn, IntPtr& packet, Int32 timeout) at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParserStateObject.ReadSni(DbAsyncResult asyncResult, TdsParserStateObject stateObj) at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParserStateObject.ReadNetworkPacket() at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParserStateObject.ReadBuffer() at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParserStateObject.ReadByte() at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParser.Run(RunBehavior runBehavior, SqlCommand cmdHandler, SqlDataReader dataStream, BulkCopySimpleResultSet bulkCopyHandler, TdsParserStateObject stateObj) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.FinishExecuteReader(SqlDataReader ds, RunBehavior runBehavior, String resetOptionsString) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.RunExecuteReaderTds(CommandBehavior cmdBehavior, RunBehavior runBehavior, Boolean returnStream, Boolean async) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.RunExecuteReader(CommandBehavior cmdBehavior, RunBehavior runBehavior, Boolean returnStream, String method, DbAsyncResult result) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.InternalExecuteNonQuery(DbAsyncResult result, String methodName, Boolean sendToPipe) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() at Namespace.Data.APXData.MapTransactions() at Namespace.Business.Mapping.MapCancelTransactions()

The code that I'm calling is pretty straight forward. Here it is:

    public static void MapCancelTransactions()
        using (SqlConnection sqlConn = new SqlConnection(ConnectionStrings.conn))
            using (SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand("sp_MyProc_CANCEL", sqlConn))
                sqlCommand.CommandTimeout = 1200; 
                sqlCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

I'm not sure how sharepoint manages the connections, but I suspect something changed from 2007 to 2010. I am connecting to ta SQL Server 2005 database. The application works when the stored proc returns in less than 30 seconds, but when it takes longer, I receive the error. Is there another time out happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The issue was the page was timing out. I had the code working on my development enviroment, but when I moved it to QA it failed. On my development enviroment I had the following

<compilation batch="false" debug="true">

On QA it was set to

<compilation batch="false" debug="false">

Because debug was set to true, it ignores the timeouts in my development environment.

In order to fix on in QA environment, I added to following to the web.config file

<location path="sites/operations/tools/Pages/MyPage.aspx">
  <httpRuntime executionTimeout="36000" />

Once I did that and retested it worked!
