You'll want to include a link to the library you're using next time; you should TellTheDetails. I now got that information from your earlier thread. Not that that got me far, without public Javadoc pages...
Inside my servlet I use webnfs and j-ftp for creating a nfs client and access to a remote directory. I need a time out when the nfs server is down but I think this api don't give me any mechanism for me pourpose. Therefore I think any mechanism, maybe a thread.
This is my code:
file.exist() method it's waiting for the connexion and if the nfs is down this method never terminate.
Anybody can help me with this problem?. I think nsf is over tcp protocolo and maybe can use some tcp connector method try to connect with nfs server and if the server is down this method throw a timeout.
The ExecutorService here is an execute-once-and-discard executor service, but you can replace it by a different executor service, possibly even make it a field or something. For this example this should be enough.
