HTTPConnection timeout

Hi,

I am using a client app in which we need to make a SSL connection to the HOST. This code is written in a class and called from struts action class.



Now when the host is down for some reason the connect call keeps trying for 5 minutes blocking the underlying socket resources. The sockets getting blocked are more in number so this results in db connections getting queued. Once 5 min is over the queued request are processed and there is DB spike happening.

Since the code base uses JDK 1.4 I cannot use the setConnectTimeout() method.
I will really appreciate your help in knowing how can i stop blocking my resource for 5 minutes? Or Can I use any time counter of my own to forcefully avoid waiting for more time and refuse connecting?

Thanks a lot
Vijaya
