Dear Mr. Lazar,

	Right now, I am working through the details of Client-Side Jigsaw 
connections.  While I do not fully understand the code yet, I maybe of some 
help you.

	I believe that the fundamental distinction between the class 
"org.w3c.www.protocol.http.HttpURLConnection", from that you proposed to 
derive, and the class "org.w3c.www.protocol.http.HttpBasicConnection" maybe 
pertinent to your question.

	"HttpURLConnection" is associated with a specific Request/Reply message 
pair.  It does not appear to independently reference the underlying socket.

	"HttpBasicConnection" is an implementation of the abstract class 
"org.w3c.www.protocol.http.HttpConnection."  It directly creates new sockets 
and calls setSoTimeout() on them in the HttpBasicConnection.markUsed() 
method.

	So to start with, you could try changing the default value for "timeout" 
(from 300000 ms to whatever) directly in the HttpBasicConnection source code 
(and see if this approach solves your problem) and recompile.

	Are you sure that the HttpManager.setTimeout() is not working?

		Truly yours,
