EJB and Client Side Timeout

I have a java servlet which accesses a stateless EJB on JBoss on a remote server, using code
Object objref = initial.lookup("TestBean");
CalculatorRemoteHome home = (TestRemoteHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(objref,TestRemoteHome.class);
TestRemote echo = home.create();
int retval=echo.do_long_request();

I want to set a timeout on the method "do_long_request"
1) Request data from ejb
2) if ejb requires more the say 30 seconds to process request and send back result data to client then
timeout on the client side and show a kind of "request took too long" error page.

Is is possible to set such a timeout , either by a config file setting or programatically?
Thanks in advance

Its possible. Which version of JBossAS and EJB do you use? Look at %JBOSS_HOME%/server/< serverName>/conf/jboss-service.xml for the default timeout (=300 seconds) on the transaction manager.
