How do you tell a Java application to sleep? For example I am talking to a serial device that need at least 300ms between commands?

I found a sleep method for a thread but I don't have a thread

Of course you have a Thread, you are running aren't you?

import java.lang.Thread
;
public class Source1
{
      public static void main (String args[])
      {
            System.out.println("Hello World!!");
            Thread cT = Thread.currentThread();
            System.out.println("Starting sleep period");
            try{
                  cT.sleep(1000);
            }
            catch(InterruptedException e){
                  System.out.println("Leave me alone!");
            }
            System.out.println("Waking up");
      }
}
