Dear Sir/Madam

I am working on a standalone project which is to simulate various clients on a machine that hits the prticular URl .

I am required to first take the input from the client in a form that is developed in Java(Swings).

This form will spawn out various threads ,each in turn hit the URL.Kindly let me know the way by which i can know the Web Server time when the main thread hits the URL.

In general is there any way out to know the webserver time when the server started/completed /processed the request/responce from the client thru the Java console

If you want to get the current time on your own system, you can do System.currentTimeMillis(), but that won't help you on the server side.

It the server is running a "time server" or "time daemon" (you can verify this using a UNIX client and typing "rdate [hostname]" at the command line), you might be able to connect to that to find out what time it is on that server.
