Pinned topic palm weme 5.7.2 NetLibSocketConnect time out

‏2007-10-31T20:58:35Z |
Hello, I downloaded the new weme 5.7.2 released by palm source.

the release notes file included in the distribution has this change history
section:

- IBM added NetLibSocketConnect time out.
- IBM now handles overriding Displayable.getTitle.
- Fixed alt key producing '?' on Treo 680 and 700.
- Fixed virtual keys, home, etc., now quit Java app.
- Fixed CustomItem.keyReleased and keyRepeated.
I'm particularly interested in the first improvement: "IBM added
NetLibSocketConnect time out". What exactly does it means? I'm having
problems detecting timeout in my http connections so this new feature may be
helpful

thank you!
Federico

    Believe it or not, I actually remembered what this was. Originally, if
    you opened a socket to a nonexistent address, the device would freeze
    and never time out. The fix was to set the socket primitives call to
    NetLibSocketConnect with a timeout after 10 seconds, rather than never
    timing out.
