soumak ghosal,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

In an effort to help you get the most from our forums, we've compiled a
list of tips for asking questions here. You can find the list in our
FAQ section here.
In particular, please see CarefullyChooseOneForum.

This forum is devoted to JSP questions.
I'll move this thread to the Java In General (Intermediate) forum where it will stand a better chance of getting a good answer.

Again, welcome to JavaRanch and good luck with your question.

What's a function point? Do you mean you want to calculate the running time of a method or manipulation?
Have you been through the java.lang.System class?
Have you found the two methods which return times yet?

If you're doing function point analysis to estimate project size, duration, cost, etc, we probably ought to move this down to the Agile and Other Processes (XP, Scrum, RUP, etc) forum. Google for "function point estimate" first to see what it's all about. Here's the IFPUG site for one example.

I agree. Here's the link:
