Hello everyone,
I have only a small question, and I know one solution, but it's not a pretty one. So I wanted to ask the experts for a better one.
My question is: how do I test wether a tcp/ip connection is available or not, without using 'catch' as a way to set a connection boolean to false.
for example, I don't want to use a construct like:
try
{
url.openConnection()
}
catch(ConnectionTimedOutException ctoe)
{
boolean connectionavailable = false;
}

Any suggestions?
Thanks, Erik Pragt
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
