Is there any ajax/richfaces/a4j approach to display a popup message before session times out ?

The only way I aware of is to set session timeout to 0 and run a javascript timer and display a popup message using javascript/ajax, but there are pros and cons in the javascript approach. My application uses richfaces 3.2.1. Please share your thoughts.
