I'm afraid this won't be of much help, yet since you wrote

I'm posting this (what we're using so that our users don't have to press 
'retry' unless it really won't get through) :


<code>
int count_error = 0;
try {
    //some code with [hasardous] connections
count_error = 0;
} catch (Exception e) {
    if (count_error == 5) {
        count_error = 0;
        //ERROR !!
    }
    else {
    //counts 5 errors (retries 5 times)
    // before actually declare an error
        count_error++;
        System.out.println("Request to server failed: retrying("
                    + count_error + ")");
        try { Thread.sleep(500); } catch (Exception err) { }
        //shoot again
    }
}
</code>
