Subject timeout
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2005 23:30:19 GMT
I just joined the list today, but have been a long time user of xmlrpc.  
Excuse me if this question has been asked before.

I saw that there is a patch to apache xmlrpc to support client-side 
timeouts using the commons-httpclient implementation.  This is good, 
since I recently found out I need support for timeouts.  The part that 
scares me is it says the CommonsXmlRpcTransport class is not 
thread-safe, and I really don't want to synchronize around my xmlrpc 
requests.  Can someone provide more information as to why it is not 
thread-safe?  I would be using this class from a Tomcat servlet that 
could be making multiple simultaneous xmlrpc requests.
