The docs say that

public static void setLoginTimeout(int seconds)

Sets the maximum time in seconds that a driver will wait while attempting to connect to a database.

Now if i set a Connection TimeOut for 5 secs , and how can i throw an exception on this if it exceeds 5 secs ??

It will throw the exception for you. You can catch it by putting a try/catch around the connection code.
