Transaction expiration problem with JRun 3.1

We are having a problem with long running session bean methods. A facade procures the javax.transaction.UserTransaction object from the context factory and begins a JTA transaction. Three methods on three different session beans are invoked in the transaction and finally the transaction is comitted by the facade. All the session beans are marked with "Required" transaction attribute so that they all participate in the same transaction context. The sessionbean methods call various entity beans that create new records in the database.
During our testing we discovered that long running transactions where 1500 or more database records are created( cumulative across different tables, ) the transaction times out and throws "Invalid or expired transaction" exception. This normally happens near the boundry of 2 minutes. jdbc.timeout
We have tried the following remedies, but none has helped.
1) Increasing ej.ejipt.defaultTransactionTimeout to 3600 in
2) Increasing ejipt.defaultTransactionTimeout to 3600 in
3) Increasing ejb.sessionTimeout to 600 in
4) Programatically setting timeout using UserTransaction.setTransactionTimeout() in the code to 3600 seconds before doing UserTransaction.begin().
5) Increasing jdbc.timeout to 10 minutes and jdbc.interval to 600( seconds? )
Dump from err.log with the exception log -

Anyone seen this before?

Hi Ajith,
Found a post in Yahoo Groups that says you have to set the following property <code>ejb.ejipt.defaultTranscationTimeout</code> in either or Maybe it has to be set in deploy??
Hope that helps. Couldn't find anything else that looked useful. Have you checked Allaires support site??
