Java Timer

Hi Everyone,
I have a JAVA client that sometimes hangs up waiting for a response from the server.
The basic code where it hangs is as follows:
********
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(con.getInputStream()));
********
where con is an object of the HttpURLConnection class.
I would like to avoid this somehow. I would like the thread to only wait for 10 seconds on this particular line (only on this line) and if a response still doesn�t come, then exception occurs.
I can imagine that I have to use the Timer class. Any help in this regard (sample code, ideas) would be highly appreciated.
Thanks!

Conversation on Timer threads. There are lots of these conversations in the Threads forum.
