java.net.SocketException: Socket Closed exception after 1 minute

Hi,

I have a web application deployed on Weblogic 10.0.  In the application there is hyperlink to download a resouce (say an PDF document).  Upon clicking the link, IE shows the Open/Save/Cancel dialog box.  If the Open/Save/Cancel dialog box is not acted upon by the user within 1 min after it pops up, Weblogic is closing the socket. This causes IE to only download a part of the file say 128 KB or something. Whereas the entire file maybe 1MB in size.

If however, user clicks on Open or Save within one minute from the time the dialog box showed up, the file gets downloaded just fine.

I am using IE 8. I have tested on IE 7 as well and the problem is there too.

Is there way to increase this timeout of 1 min?

Thanks,
-Piyush

Here is the stacktrace visible on the console:

Is it a http or https download?

You might want to increase keepalive timeout value and check it out

This for version 10 is an excellent resouce, just search for "keep", quickly find some key options.

Rajesh_Bala: it is an http download. and we are on weblogic 10.0

I have tried increasing the <keep-alive-secs> in config.xml of weblogic.  but that is not taking effect.  What is perplexing is why does the socket get closed after 1 min (60 seconds) from the time, IE displays the File Download( Open/Save/Cancel) dialog box.

Any other thoughts?

well, It has to do with keepalive from my experience. Simple reason is that weblogic would maintain the socket open for sometime (until it gets back some data from client. Or server sending data to client).

If the socket is idle beyond this limit, it would simply close the connection.

Found the solution.  The parameter that needs tuning is the CompleteMessageTimeout.  It can be found under: Server -> AdminServer -> Protocols -> General (tab).

This value ranges from 0 to 480 seconds.

Make sure to bounce the server the after the change, even though weblogic console says, No restarts necessary!
