Subject RE: Client side timeout?
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2006 20:56:35 GMT
I'm limited in what I can do because of J2EE/Websphere/Corporate standards. The request is
part of a global transaction running on an applciation server thread in Websphere. As well
there are issues accessing "container managed resources"on application threads.
Bottom line is I need an exectue that does not block forever. seems to me that this would
be the norm and an execute that waits for data foever the exception. no?
So I am wondering if  there is  technical or spec reason for not supporting it or is it just
ie) what would be involved to add this feature.

to do it.   
Why can you not use another thread?

My requirement is to return with an error when a response to a request is not returned within
our SLA (say 2 seconds). Note that I cannot manage threads nor can I control this at the service
level (I don't own the server code).

I know this question has been asked before but I don't see answers/recommendations, other
than a suggestion to 

use commons HttpClient. Is this the recommended approach? any sample code, hint? anyone? :)
