Whenever I try to debug a servlet with the debugger, things go sort of OK. I can pause execution at breakpoints, inspect variables, etc...

But after about 30 seconds, the session timesout and I get message:

Page load failed with error: The request timed out.

I understand that this behaviour is to be expected with a production server, i.e. the requests should time out after 30 seconds or so. But when debugging, I expect the session to stay open for as long as i need to follow the execution of the place where the bug is happening.

Is there a way to lauch tomcat or the servlet and tell it to not timeout?

I tried putting a large session-timeout in my web.xml file, but it didn't seem to make a difference:

<servlet>
<servlet-name>FindDocs</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.alpacatechnologies.InterPrep.FindDocsServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>FindDocs</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/FindDocs</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
<!-- Long session timeout so we can run the debugger and pause without the session timing out. -->
<session-config>
<session-timeout>240</session-timeout>
</session-config>


Thx.

looks like a question for the Web Tools experts, no?
