1. I want to schedule a process to run at 12 midnight everyday. How do I do that by using Timer object? Or is there any other way? Sample code will be much helpful.

2. I use Timer.schedule(TimerTask task, Date time) function, but having problem to define the Date parameter. ex. I want to run it on 2002/04/30,
Date time = new Date(102,4,30), this doesn't work.

Thank you!

hi cHEo, :-)

Valid month-value for Date is 0..11, not 1..12
maybe that is why your task execution was not triggered.
[unless you are prepared to wait till the end of may ;)]
However, you should use Calendar instead of date, because the constructor you're using is deprecated.

You can take a look at:

Greetings,
