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 exception..
I'm wondering what am i doing wrong here..
Hope you guys can throw some light on what I'm doing wrong
