Default Set Socket Timeouts

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Is there any way of setting the timeout value on a socket connection? I have created my connection like so:

Code:
connection = (SocketConnection) Connector.open( url, Connector.READ_WRITE, true );
Where true should enable timeout exceptions, but I never see them. If I try to make a connection to a machine that doesn't give a response I have to wait about 2 or 3 minutes, and then I get a null pointer exception.

Can I explicity set the timeout? If not I guess I am going to have to manually have a timer that cancels the connection after the given time.

TIA, Ben

I don't remember having seen this possibility.
Hum what about separate thread with a sleep !?
