Hi,
I want to write a java code to test the speed of network. I want to use the www.google.com as url for testing my network speed. I need to perform the following operations :
1) ping
2) Sockets
3) http
4) DNS resolution

How to i perform all these operation in java ie. how do i ping the www.google.com and get the result in java ?
Similarly i want to check how long it takes to make a sockets connection with google and how long http calls take and DNS resolution.


Thanks

I strongly recommend you to check out ICMP4J. Do not re-invent the wheel, If you are willing to use 3rd party lib

Is there no simple way in java to create a socket and send some data and get the response just to see the rountrip time ?

I want to calculate the roundtrip time to google.

Here I posted sample code. It checks connectivity first then pings for once.
You may remove connection test part for your constraints. Because it checks connectivity over HTTP protocol.
ConnectivityTest.java

Hi
Thanks for the code.
Its good
But i nees some other way to fo for ping command in java as i will be testing this on an app on android phone.
I think in that case checking for operating system and executing the ping command wont work.
