Subject Re: How to run servlet for every 30 minutes in Tomcat 4.1.30
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2004 08:07:00 GMT
Use java.util.Timer and java.util.TimerTask.  Create a Timer object. 
Timer timer = new Timer().  Then create a TimerTask object.  SomeTask
task = new SomeTasK().

private class SomeTask
      extends TimerTask {

    public void run() {
      // do stuff

Schedule the task:  timer.schedule(task, 10, 400).  Wallah!

I do this all the time.  You have to know what you are doing.  If you
do, then do it.  This is what the apps like Quartz do anyway.  This is
just lightweight.
