Session timeout when running servlet in debugger [message #1161550] Tue, 29 October 2013 21:59 Go to next message

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:

<!-- Long session timeout so we can run the debugger and pause without the session timing out. -->

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

Looks like there aren't any "Web Tools experts" since this has been open from 2009, and even the Eclipse Genie closed the issue using the argument:

This bug hasn't had any activity in quite some time. Maybe the problem got resolved, was a duplicate of something else, or became less pressing for some reason - or maybe it's still relevant but just hasn't been looked at yet. As such, we're closing this bug.

If you have further information on the current state of the bug, please add it and reopen this bug. The information can be, for example, that the problem still occurs, that you still want the feature, that more information is needed, or that the bug is (for whatever reason) no longer relevant.

The automated Eclipse Genie.


But on a serious note, has anyone found an answer to this? In my case, this is occurring with the PHP server that is internal to Eclipse. while accessing my Apache/PHP/MySQL virtual hosted server running on my machine.
