Hey everyone,
  Well I have another pretty easy question that I am kind of not sure about.  I am trying to figure out how to write a timeout for a jms message.  I basically send a message to the server and the server sends a message back, however if the message is not sent back the client side just sits and waits.  I would like to place a timeout so after 30 seconds or so if a message is not recieved then it will stop waiting.  I have never written a timeout and cant really find much good documentation on it.  Can anyone kind of steer me in the right direction here?

Thanks again for all your help!

You could use the Timer.
http://www.javaalmanac.com/egs/java.util/ScheduleLater.html
You can schedule a timer before you send and wait.
When this timer is gone, then then block the wait in the send class.

Hope this could help you.

OR, you COULD try this:

-Create a thread to listen for the message  (which will set a boolean variable as true if a message has been recieved)
-Start the thread
-pause for 30 seconds  (ie;   try{Thread.sleep(30 *1000);} catch (Exception e) {}    )
-then check if the boolean var is 'true'. If not, close the socket, etc..

If you can make some sence of that, then you could get it to work :P

Best of luck,
[r.D]

In JMS
its accually the time of the Publisher you set
I did something like this

publisher = this.createTopicPublisher(session, topic);
            //So that the messages dies after 6 seconds
publisher.setTimeToLive(message.getTimeout());
