Is it possible to timeout java method?

it fixes the issue You could use something like the TimeLimiter from the Google Guava library. This allows you to wrap a callable in an operation that you can call with Timeout. If the callable does not complete the operation in time, it will throw a TimeoutException which you can catch and return false after one second.
As an example:
code :
TimeLimiter timeLimiter = new SimpleTimeLimiter();
try {
  String result = timeLimiter.callWithTimeout(
                () -> callToPing(), 1, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
  return true // Or something based on result
} catch (TimeoutException e) {
  return false

what is the best way to create a timeout to a method in java?

I wish this help you That heavily depends on what your method is doing. The simplest approach would be to periodically check how long the method has been executing and return when the limit is exceeded.
code :
long t0 = System.currentTimeMillis();
// do something
long t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();
if (t1-t0 > x*1000) {
public <T> T myMethod() {
    ExecutorService executor = Executors.newSingleThreadExecutor();
    try {
        try {
            T value = executor.invokeAny(Collections.singleton(new Callable<T>() {
                public T call() throws Exception {
                    //your actual method code here
                    return null;
            }), 3, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
            System.out.println("All went fine");
            return value;
        } catch (TimeoutException e) {
            System.out.println("Exceeded time limit, interrupted");
        } catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("Some error happened, handle it properly");
        return null; /*some default value*/
    } finally {

hope this fix your issue You can try using Thread.sleep(long millis), which
code :
System.out.println("Program has Ended");
try {
   Thread.sleep(5000); //5000 milliseconds = 5 seconds.
} catch (InterruptedException e) {

Java, Spring : Setting timeout for a method so the code returns to method end.

Any of those help One of the ways to implement your requirement is to call your method asynchronously. The method will need to return Future or CompletableFuture (if you are using Java 8).
So you will have a method annotated with @Async (you need to enable async with @EnableAsync in your config):
code :
   CompletableFuture<Void> createDocxToPdfAndThenToImage(String targetLocation)
CompletableFuture<Void> future= createDocxToPdfAndThenToImage(targetLocation);
   future.get( 10, SECONDS)
       CompletableFuture<String> createDocxToPdfAndThenToImage(String targetLocation)  ....

       CompletableFuture<String> future=createDocxToPdfAndThenToImage(targetLocation);
       return future.get( 10, SECONDS);

java.lang.AbstractMethodError: abstract method "okio.Timeout okhttp3.Call.timeout()"

it should still fix some issue After some research on investigating this issue here is what I found out:
Apparently, this crash is caused due to a timeout error when the React Native package uses okhttp3 by the time a React Native application instance is created.

How to set timeout in a method in Java and retry method for a periodic amount of time

I wish this help you Your method already has a 5 seconds timeout. All you need to do now is to add some kind a loop with 3 repeats. You need a counter of timeouts and a break after successful attempt. Not sure what you want to do when other exceptions happen, added breaks there as well. Following code should do the job:
code :
private ConnectionInterface  connectWithTimeout() throws MalformedURLException, Exception {
        int repeatCount = 0;

        ExecutorService executor = Executors.newCachedThreadPool();
        Callable<Object> task = new Callable<Object>() {
            public Object call() throws InterruptedException, MalformedURLException, Exception {
                return connectWithNoTimeout();  //This is the method that takes to long. If this method takes more than 5 seconds, I want to cancel and retry for 3 more times. Then abort completely.

        while (repeatCount < 3){
          Future<Object> future = executor.submit(task);
          try {
              Object result = future.get(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

          } catch (TimeoutException ex) {
            System.out.println( "Timeout Occured");

          } catch (InterruptedException e) {
            System.out.println( " "InterruptedException Occured");

          } catch (ExecutionException e) {
              System.out.println( "ExecutionException Occured");

          } finally {

              future.cancel(true); // here the method gets canceled. How do I retry it?
        System.out.println( "Connected !!");
        return connectWithNoTimeout();
