Start Thread within WebService Request


H

Henrik Hofmann

Hi,

I am starting a database job which takes a long time (5 hrs) by sending a
request to a webservice.

example:

[WebMethod]
public string StartJob()
{

//Create Thread ....

thread.Start();

return "JOB STARTED";


}



The webservice starts the thread and returns a message instantly to the
user. After some time (about two hours) I receive a timeout exception from
the webserver and the thread gets terminated. I believe this is the same
timeout as the usual request timeout. How can I start a thread from within a
request whithout being affected by any timeouts?

Best regards,

Henrik
