Cold Fusion-based RIA:
beta Test version: (CF 6.1): "Master" CF (XHTML) page: client
communication in the background to/from the server using 70+ CF
scripts and 16 static XML and XSLT scripts. Most of the CF scripts
are importing and/or exporting data to/from a SQL Server database.
Development (CF 8.0): Same architecture, most scripts are
identical to the beta test versions; the CF version is the only
significant difference between the two RIA versions.
When using Ajax on the beta test server, timeouts set in the
root Application.cfm were set to 20 minutes, but had to be
increased to 120 minutes because CF 6.1 apparently doesn't reset
the timeouts when Ajax calls are used. I have not observed the same
problem on the development server, but I don't use the system as
much as do the testers.
The beta test version is scheduled to be upgraded to CF 8
very soon... The official security schema here requires inactivity
timeouts NOT exceeding 20 minutes, so - if possible - I need to
restore the original timeout parameters ...
Have newer versions of CF been modified to allow Ajax calls
to update inactivity timeouts?
