It is possible to make a timeout in the following code, or do i have to make a thread for timeouts on a http connection ???
Im using java 1.4.2
URL url = new URL(ipadresse);
URLConnection urlConnection = url.openConnection();
urlConnection.setDoOutput(true);

I ran into the same problem and found no direct solution using core Java classes. I ended up using the Jakarta Commons HttpClient API (http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/httpclient), which does handle timeout very well. If you are trying to post data to a URL or any other HTTP operations, it is the way to go.
Hope this helps.
