GWT does not open a persistent connection to your server. GWT-RPC / RequestFactory / RequestBuilder all do HTTP requests. The TCP connection used to make these HTTP requests is managed by the browser.--
If you are using any server push / long polling gwt libraries then you should ask their maintainers why their library does not reconnect to your server.
10 minutes sounds like the typical TCP connection timeout.
