It's not what I mean to do...
Here's an example : my machine has a 56kbits modem connection and I want to send a 2 Mbytes file. So I would like to measure the exact time to send this file. This time will be around 6-8 minutes. And I would like to have a way in Java to measure this time !
Your method doesn't work, Coilcore, because the "socket.send" call is not blocking.
