Subject Why ClockDaemon instead of java.util.Timer?
Date Mon, 28 Aug 2006 00:50:33 GMT
Does not look like ClockDaemon is going to ever make it into  
java.util.concurrent (or the backport).  I've also found several  
sources online that suggest that "Doug Lea says that it replaces its  
ClockDaemon class.", though I have not actually found anywhere that  
Doug actually says that.

It also looks like ClockDaemon was added way back before there was  
java.util.Timer in the JDK... and I'm guessing that since they did  
not bring it into java.util.concurrent that it is probably  
recommended to just use java.util.Timer.
