int delay = 5000;   // delay for 5 sec.
    int period = 1000;  // repeat every sec.
    Timer timer = new Timer();
   
    timer.scheduleAtFixedRate(new TimerTask() {
            public void run() {
//              your table cells code here
            }
        }, delay, period);

i use JDK1.2,and the classes Timer and TimerTask don't exist.
could you tell me if there is some thing equivalent in this release of JDK.

Hi kimo100,

girionis's suggestion is the solution unless you want more time precision (launch the task even if the last was not terminated) :

class MyTimerTask extends Thread
{
    public void doJob()
    {
          try{
          for(;;)
          {
               synchronized(this)
               {
                    wait();

                    // ...

               }
          }
          }catch(Exception ex){}
    }

    public void run()
    {
          Thread jobth=null;
          try{
          jobth=new Thread(){
             public void run(){doJob();}
           };
          jobth.start();
          for(;;)
          {
               synchronized(this)
               {
                    notify();
                    Thread.sleep(1000);
               }
          }
          }catch(Exception ex){}
          jobth.interrupt();
    }
}
