A single servlet is deployed in tomcat 5.5.9 running with a GET request. The background process that is hit takes 4-5 hrs to complete and in the mean time after 30 mins(default), the browser page displays "Page cannot be displayed" error. After the process is complete I just need to show a msg that "your process is complete"
I have tried web.xml property <session-timeout>-1</session-timeout> but it is not working. Is it because after the first request is sent there is no response back to the browser and the client browser never comes to know the session timeout value.
Suggest me something for this. Let me know if what I am doing is correct or I am getting wrong somewhere.
