I m having a dillema now. I have a java program that tries to send message accross an http server. Now when the server is not available, it throws an obvious IOException. Now my requirement is that I want to resend the same message to a backup http server if the first server fails.

I have found the solution but I think my code smells.

the client code :

Can anybody tell me what is wrong with this code??

You could structure it a little bit better. Nesting all that code in subsequent catch blocks looks a bit messy. For example:
