Setting Timeout for the JAX-RS 2.0 / Resteasy Client

· Java Zone

What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Adam asked me about that at NetBeans Day in Munich. One part of the JAX-RS Client API isn't fully standardized but still very important looking at today's microservice architectures. I am talking about timeouts here. Adam showed how to set them for Jersey and I just needed to find out how to do the same with Resteasy.

import javax.ws.rs.client.Client;
import org.jboss.resteasy.client.jaxrs.ResteasyClient;
import org.jboss.resteasy.client.jaxrs.ResteasyClientBuilder;

 Client client = new ResteasyClientBuilder()
                .establishConnectionTimeout(100, TimeUnit.SECONDS)
                .socketTimeout(2, TimeUnit.SECONDS)
                .build();
ResteasyClientBuilder is basically an abstraction for creating Clients which uses Apache Http Client under the covers. That's it.
