Subject Session timeout during method execution
Date Fri, 26 Jan 2007 07:45:16 GMT

I have a little complicated issue with HttpSession timeout process. It goes
like this.

Lets says, my Web Application session timeout period is 5 minutes.
I made a Http request to server and corresponding Servlet requires more than
5 minutes lets say 10 minutes to complete the business logic.

As we can see in the above case, Session is invalidated before end of
business logic execution in Servlet.

I've tried following code to work around the problem but seems to be no luck

Before executing the business logic in a method

int timeoutBackup = session.getMaxInactiveInterval(); (5 minutes)

Business Logic.... (10 minutes)

session.setMaxInactiveInterval( timeoutBackup ); ( 5 minutes )

If i make the next request on same session, I get session invalid
I'm wondering what am i doing wrong here..

Hope you guys can throw some light on what I'm doing wrong

Best Regards,
