When you use watched folders with PDFG ES2 SP1 and increase the timeout, the process still times out after the default 600 seconds. This problem will occur even if you have increased the Application Server transaction timeout, the socket timeout, or JTA timeout in jboss-server.xml, or the timeout settings on the PDFConfigService, and ConvertPDFService.
This problem can be seen with the following log extract:
