How to Configure Timeout Duration on the Client Side for Axis2 Web Services

The Integration Zone is brought to you in partnership with 3scale. Take control of your APIs and get a free t-shirt when you complete the 3step Challenge

Axis2 uses CommonsHTTPTransportSender by default, which is based on commons-httpclient-3.1. At transport level, there’re two types of timeouts that can be set:

1. Socket Timeout
2. Connection Timeout

Here’s how you can configure the above ones:

Way #1: Configuring timeouts in axis2.xml

Socket Timeout
<parameter name=”SO_TIMEOUT”>some_integer_value</parameter>

Connection timeout
<parameter name=”CONNECTION_TIMEOUT”>some_integer_value</parameter>

Way #2: Configuring timeouts in code

    …
    Options options = new Options();
    options.setProperty(HTTPConstants.SO_TIMEOUT, new Integer(timeOutInMilliSeconds));
    options.setProperty(HTTPConstants.CONNECTION_TIMEOUT, new Integer(timeOutInMilliSeconds));

    // or
    options.setTimeOutInMilliSeconds(timeOutInMilliSeconds);
    …

Real-life code: How to set timeout for a Axis2 Stub?

long timeout = 2 * 60 * 1000; // Two minutes
Stub stub = new TestStub();
stub._getServiceClient().getOptions().setTimeOutInMilliSeconds(soTimeout);
 
//or
 
long timeout = 2 * 60 * 1000; // Two minutes
Stub stub = new TestStub();
stub._getServiceClient().getOptions().setProperty(
                 HTTPConstants.SO_TIMEOUT, new Integer(timeOutInMilliSeconds));
stub._getServiceClient().getOptions().setProperty(
                 HTTPConstants.CONNECTION_TIMEOUT, new Integer(timeOutInMilliSeconds));
