How do set - in my case raise - the connection timeouts of the Neo4j server? I have a server extension to which I POST data, sometimes that much that the extension is running for a couple of minutes. But after 200 seconds, the connection is dropped by the server. I think I have to raise the max idle time of the embedded jetty - but I don't know how to do that since it's all configured within the Neo4j Server code.
Edit: I've tried both Neo4j 1.8.2 and 1.9.RC2 with the same result.
Edit2: Added the "embedded-jetty" tag because there are no answers until now; perhaps the question can be answered by someone with knowledge about embedded Jetty since Neo4j uses an embedded Jetty.
The server guards against orphaned transactions by using a timeout. If there are no requests for a given transaction within the timeout period, the server will roll it back. You can configure the timeout period by setting the following property to the number of seconds before timeout. The default timeout is 60 seconds.
I still don't know if there is a solution in the Neo4j server with versions <2.0. However, with switching to 2.0.0 and above, this issue was gone for my case.
