Hello everybody, I'm implementing a method in which I can validate if a Web Service is active, I've validated this by using HttpURLConnection, for example, my url is:

If it is not active (because the server is not started or the web service is not deployed) the method returns false. If everything is ok, then it returns true. It runs perfectly but it takes so long sometimes and I want to manage that. I mean, for example, I'm trying to connect and after 15 seconds the command url.openConnection().connect() is executed, it shows me a message like "The connection will take more time than it expected, please be patient" or something like that. somebody told me I should use threads but I don't thin that would help me. I would like to know if there's a method or maybe I could manage it by inheritance overwriting the methods of the HttpURLConnection class.

If somebody could help me please, I beg for some help, I would really be really grateful. Thanks in advance.
