    a4j:poll and sesstion timeout

    Martin Dubuc Newbie

      I am using Tomcat 6.0.18 with JSF 1.2 (Sun RI) and RichFaces 3.3.0. I would like to build a page that would report application status. I would like to use a4j:poll to refresh the status value. I have created such a page and it works as expected. However, one thing I noticed is that my authenticated sessions are not timing out anymore after I added the a4j:poll. It looks as though every time the client polls the server for data, the session time-to-live value is reset. I am wondering if there is a way to get around this. I would like my sessions to still time out if the user isn't clicking any controls on the page, regardless how many times portion of the page is refreshed because of a4j:poll.
