How to wait on a servlet or non threaded app?

I would like to use an equivalent of the wait(long) method used by threads but it is a servlet.  I don't really want to create a thread just for this since it brings in all the servlet/thread problems.

Do anyone know of a reliable method for sleeping/waiting for a given number of millimeconds?

btw. your questions shows that you do not have the slightest idea what wait() / notify() are designed for. take a look at some tutorial on Java synchronization.
