- This is happening still in 1.4.2. Hence it is not addressed in 1.4.2

Comments
EVALUATION Submitter is correct, HttpsClient's doConnect overrides the NetworkClient's doConnect, and thus doesn't respect the properties. Will need to think about whether this is a showstopper for mantis. I'm leaning away from it, so if this is critical, please let us know. ###@###.### 2003-01-31 Not a showstopper, fix for tiger. Yingxian is working on 4700777 anyway, which this is related to this bug. ###@###.### 2003-03-31 Both the old system property sun.net.client.default(Connect|Read)Timeout and the Tiger new APIs for setting timeout (URLConnection.(set|get)(Connect|Read)Timeout() are supported as a result of fixing 4905410: Https needs to support new tiger features that went into http. ###@###.### 2003-10-20
