Hi Kenneth,

     Thank you for your suggestion. Here are my comments:

1.       A real function to support "keep alive" pings

We plan to call "GETFEATUREPROVIDERS" through MapAgent to keep alive. This function is light-weighted and won't cause much overhead. Using this method is the easiest way to approach it. Your suggestion makes sense, but we'll need to add another API which is only for this purpose, so we decide not to do this.

2.       The client read out timeout value to adjust ping interval

I'm afraid it's too much complicated. The plan is to ping server at a fixed time interval (of course you can set it in configuration), and the interval won't change during runtime. It works as Fusion does.

3.       Connection broken

Once the connection broken or timeout because server down, the client will stop ping server. But it will not recovery from a broken/timeout session.

Thanks & regards,
