Hi all, This question might sound little strange, but then kindly bear with it. I have this doubt regarding JDK1.1.8!!! java.net package in JDK1.1.8 doesnt have SocketTimeoutException it has only SocketException. So how to catch exception which is raised when socket times out? There is one more exception listed in API ProtocolException. Now what is the difference between the events which raise these exception coz API says same thing about both >>Thrown to indicate that there is an error in the underlying protocol, such as a TCP error. << Also SocketTimeoutException is inherited from java.io.InterruptedIOException, so will it be a good idea to catch InterruptedIOException to signal timeout?? Thanking in advance regds Dhama
