I am trying to write a timer servlet that starts up when tomcat is started up (set up in the web.xml file to <load-on-startup>) and runs a single method once an hour.
I'm new to this technology and havent got time to learn everything to do this one task. Basically i havent got a clue on to slove this problem.
I would be gateful if anyone could provide an example of a timer servlet and how to initalise it in tomcat. Does not need to be specific to my problem, i can use the example as a basis to solve my problem
Thank You for any help !!!
