Subject Interruptible POSTs

Hi everybody,

I am using HTTPClient to POST messages to a web service. The server 
processing can potentially take very long and I would like to have the 
option of interrupting the call on the client side.

My question is: How can I achieve this with HTTPClient? I am using a 
MultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager and create a HTTPClient with that 
manager which I then use in a separate thread. However, 
PostMethod.executeMethod does not seem to be aware of the possibility of 
interruptions (i.e. it does not throw a InterrupedException and also 
doesn't seem to be aware of thread interruptions).

My question is, how can I (prematurely) stop executeMethod from the 
outside? Or am I attacking the problem from the wrong side?

Thanks a lot,
