I checked the class implementation of which you have mentioned. Originally I wanted to change the Connect timeout (org.eclipse.ecf.internal.provider.irc.container.IRCChannelContainer.CONNECT_TIMEOUT) because it deals with the timeout on creation of connection and it was the problem which I suffered when connecting to private channels. So I'm gonna change it first and deal with the other timeout later.
I'll provide a path for this.

Hi Scott, All,
Thanks a lot for the quick reply. I have created the enhancement request 327032
for this addition. I assigned it to myself and start working on this right away. Thanks a lot for the directions. Be back with it asap.
Thanks & Regards,

The current IRC provider implementation doesn't support setting the connection timeout. However, it would/could easily be added. The way to do it would be to add some notion of timeout to the implementation of org.eclipse.ecf.internal.provider.irc.container.IRCRootContainer.connect(ID, IConnectContext).

Can we do it? Is there any place to configure the timeout period in the current Implementation? If not I would like to do this asap :)
The current implementation of this method creates an IRCConnection (from IRClib library), but does *not* call IRCConnection.setTimeout(timeout). It could easily be enhanced to do so...for example on approx line 170 call connection.setTimeout(timeout). Of course if this is done then some means to specify the desired timeout (e.g. upon creation of the container, etc) should be added as well. Note there is also a connect timeout...I'm not sure if you wish to customize that as well (see org.eclipse.ecf.internal.provider.irc.container.IRCChannelContainer.CONNECT_TIMEOUT).
In any case, please open an enhancement request for this...and if you would like to add this functionality yourself Harshana then please assign the new bug to yourself and go ahead and make the additions. I won't be able to immediately work on it myself, unfortunately.
