Time taken by a request

Hi Team
Is there any method in java to calculate the time taken by a request to travel from browser to server and back to browser. I want to calculate the time taken by each request sent and received.

Thanks in advance

In order to measure the total travel time you need custom code on the client side to emulate a browser or a specialized browser plugin.

You could use the standard Java library classes in the java.net and java.io packages and the System.currentTimeMillis() method to time a single request/response cycle. If you just want to measure the time in the servlet, ignoring network time, use currentTimeMillis in your doGet etc method.

The Apache HttpClient toolkit could be used for more complex testing.
