Ajax requests do keep the session alive and that cannot be changed as far as I know. The point of the Ajax framework was to allow ajax requests to component actions instead of direct actions. You'd probably be fighting it every step of the way if you tried to make it sessionless.

It sounds like your logger isn't set to the level you think it is set to. Your logger format can be set to tell you the log level on each line. You can also view/modify your logger levels using the log4j action on the ERXDirectAction, which is pretty neat. You might be able to solve your problem just fiddling around in there.

Subject: [WO-DEV] Couple Ajax(Ping) Questions

Does anybody know the answers to the following?

- Do Ajax requests keep the session alive? It seems that when I use AjaxPing the session never times out. Can this be changed somehow?
- I have Why does each and every Ajax request dump some stuff into the (console) log. Is it possible to have finer grained logging for Ajax?
  How can I filter such stuff and not have it in the log at all:
 (...  - url /cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyApp.woa/ajax/zexYv...TKyM/4585.
- Is it possible to control an AjaxPing (or auto update container) purely on the client side? I know AjaxPing has a stopped binding but that only works in conjunction with the server. Client side control would allow AjaxPing to stop when the browser window/tab is hidden. In such a case I do not need the ping at all.
