Back in 2005, I modified the jython socket module to support timeouts. Brian Zimmer checked in that patch, since I did not have jython SVN commit rights at that time.
I wrote a documentation page about the new timeout support, and placed it on xhaus.com. Due to a rearrangement of the xhaus.com website, I am moving that page to this blog.
It should be noted that the timeout functionality has been superceded by the further work that I did to make the socket module support asychronous I/O. So you should refer to the jython socket module documentation to see how to use timeouts. This page appears here solely for historical purposes.
