Async Web Service - Maximum Time?

P: n/a
Is there a realistic maximum time a client can wait for an async response
from a web service?

I have requests that may take anywhere from 1 - 5 minutes to complete...
maybe even more. Is it safe to use an async web service?

Also, is there a limit to the number of async requests a server can
support? Any type of limiters I should be aware of? Threading limits?

Thanks!

Hi Lucas:

You'll certainly run into the 2 connection limit if you have a large
number of outbound calls (see

There are some more good tips in this article:
