Experiencing problems while setting a timeout using a WebService Proxy Client inside a WebCenter Portal Framework application.

In summary, what happens is that you attempt to set a timeout for the WebService client call and such seems not to take effect.
You can simply verify this, by setting some code around the WebService call, like:


In a simple JDeveloper Generic application and not using JFR webservices, the functionality works as expected.



Do remember a couple of things:

  1. The timeout setting won't be really the timeout for the entire WebService client call ( request from the client + connection to the WebService + execution of the WebService + response to the client );
  2. You'll be only able to set the connection or the request/execution timeout of the WebService, not the overall timeout of the WebService client call itself.

A possible way out for this could be to use a Thread class (eg, extend it) and use a thread to invoke the WebService client and later after X time, kill it.
