I'm implementing an application that uses GeoServer deployed on apache tomcat. I would like to know if there is a way to handle an error case, such as when GeoServer is hung. For example, I'd like to display a message to user or something like that on client side.
I've been told that :
If GeoServer hangs, you will receive no answer. You should set a read time out for your GeoServer HTTP requests. After the timeout, you can send back whatever you want.
but since I'm pretty beginner at these stuff, I've no idea how to do that. would anyone please explain me more how to set a readtime out for your GeoServer HTTP requests ??
EDIT: Can I convert the configuration in proxyhost to message displays to the user ?
