How to set an Apache HttpClient timeout value (Java)

How to set a timeout on an Apache HttpClient:

HttpClient client = new DefaultHttpClient();
client.getParams().setParameter("http.socket.timeout", new Integer(10*1000));

I like to make my code easier to read, so I use the "10*1000" there to make it easier to read that I want a ten-second timeout.
