Method Detail

getHttpServletRequest

javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest getHttpServletRequest()
Returns the HttpServletRequest.

Returns:
HttpServletRequest

getHttpServletResponse

javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse getHttpServletResponse()
Returns the HttpServletResponse.

Returns:
HttpServletResponse

getEventType

CometEvent.EventType getEventType()
Returns the event type.

Returns:
EventType

getEventSubType

CometEvent.EventSubType getEventSubType()
Returns the sub type of this event.

Returns:
EventSubType

close

void close()
           throws java.io.IOException
Ends the Comet session. This signals to the container that the container wants to end the comet session. This will send back to the client a notice that the server has no more data to send as part of this request. The servlet should perform any needed cleanup as if it had recieved an END or ERROR event.

Throws:
java.io.IOException - if an IO exception occurs

setTimeout

void setTimeout(int timeout)
                throws java.io.IOException,
                       javax.servlet.ServletException,
                       java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException
Sets the timeout for this Comet connection. Please NOTE, that the implementation of a per connection timeout is OPTIONAL and MAY NOT be implemented.
This method sets the timeout in milliseconds of idle time on the connection. The timeout is reset every time data is received from the connection or data is flushed using response.flushBuffer(). If a timeout occurs, the error(HttpServletRequest, HttpServletResponse) method is invoked. The web application SHOULD NOT attempt to reuse the request and response objects after a timeout as the error(HttpServletRequest, HttpServletResponse) method indicates.
This method should not be called asynchronously, as that will have no effect.

Parameters:
timeout - The timeout in milliseconds for this connection, must be a positive value, larger than 0
Throws:
java.io.IOException - An IOException may be thrown to indicate an IO error, or that the EOF has been reached on the connection
javax.servlet.ServletException - An exception has occurred, as specified by the root cause
java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException - if per connection timeout is not supported, either at all or at this phase of the invocation.
