I have a Server which has a collection of sockets. and some time when the socket times out, the writer thread hangs at this socket and is blocked. How can i prevent the blocking and just ignore this socket (and close and send it to hell)?
thanx
Mike

Are you on Solaris? NT? Do you have all the latest patches?

YOu can generally set the timeout on a socket by using setSoTimeout(int).
This definitely works for checking timeouts when using read(), it may work for write() too

I imagined that Mike already knew about setSoTimeout(). There were some problems with Solaris that were fixed with patches some time ago and it sounded like the same situation.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
