does anyone know if there is a way of performing a ping operation from a java module?

MY prject involves a number of servers and the first thing I want to do is test if they are there, or at least if something responds on the given IP address.

thanks in advance,

AFAIK, you cant use raw sockets from Java, so you cant do a ping.

But you can always use a native method (I've tried it succesfully) with the portability drawbacks it suppose.
