default timeout for URLConnection changed in jre 1.7?
I am observing intermittent java.net.SocketTimeoutException exception reading files only with jre 1.7. Its my understanding that the default timeout for a URLConnection (set via setConnectTimeout()) is infinite. With 1.7 it appears it is no longer infinite by default. We have never set a timeout explicitly so I am wondering if the default has changed to a finite value? I am using build 107 or jre 1.7.
