Reproducing the Issue

However if we run same XML in SAP Bydesign back end it takes hardly any time.


If the payload is little huge with close to say 100 plus items then there is a read time out error due to socket time equal to 0 seconds.

Socket timeouts can occur when attempting to connect to a remote server, or during communication, especially long-lived ones. They can be caused by any connectivity problem on the network.

  1. Go to Under File
  2. Choose Preferences
  3. Go to HTTP settings
  4. Maintain Socket Timeout field with 600000 ms
