Is typing into a textbox considered idling? Will WD program time out?

Hi all Gurus,

Just wondering, we all know that a Web dynpro application will timeout after a period of inactivity. But what about performing an action in the textbox like typing?

My customize Web Dynpro program involves having a "Comment" Box for user to typing in their comments. Sometimes the user may take a long time to complete the comments (eg. writing essay style)

Will there be an issue where after typing for long periods (let's say, 1/2 hour), he clicks submit but receive error that says "session is timeout."?

Does the WD application takes typing as an activity within portal?

Thanks for answers.

Best Regards,

Jansen

    Entering text into a TextEdit is a purely client-side activity, this will not affect the server timeout. Maybe you can use a TimedTrigger with a long interval to periodically reset the session timeout.

    Hi Jansen,

    Ideally speaking, it should not invalidate the session.

    If you are facing this problem then you can increase the connection time .

    For that you have to do some setting at R3 side:

    You need to maintain icm/keep_alive_timeout & icm/conn_timeout parameter using Transaction RZ11.

    You need to set the values for both the parameters as per your requirements.

    Please see the belo log for more clarifications:

    Thanks

    Hi

    Try to set webdynpro application ExpirationTime property to a long value so that it is not timed out your application.

    Double click on the application and change application properties.

    Thank guys for the wonderful advises/answers. Especially on the timedTrigger suggestion by Armin.

    I'm in the process of deploying a test application to try it out. Will update on my findings to validate all answers.

    Best Regards,
