"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Use java.util.Timer

More specificaly:

MyTimerTask task=new MyTimerTask();
Timer t=new Timer();
t.schedule(task, startTime, 1000*60) ;
...

Class MyTimerTask extends TimerTask
{
  public void run()
  {
...Scheduled activity...
  }
}


The java.util.Timer class is new to JDK 1.4.  If you are using an older JDK you will have to write something using Threads.

This appends a line of text in the file log.txt at directory C:\dir1\dir2 every minute:

/*
 * TimerDemo.java
 *
 */

import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;

/**
 *
 * @author  zzynx
 */
public class TimerDemo {
   
    public TimerDemo() {
        new Timer().schedule(new TimerTask() {
            public void run() {
                File f = new File("c:/dir1/dir2/log.txt");
                try {
                    FileWriter writer = new FileWriter(f, true);
                    writer.write(new Date().toString() + " Another line written");
                    writer.write(10);
                    writer.close();
                } catch (IOException ex) {
                    ex.printStackTrace();
                }
            }
        }, new Date(), 1000*60);
    }
   
    public static void main (String args[]) {
        new TimerDemo();
    }
}

The file looks like:

Wed Sep 15 14:57:34 CEST 2004 Another line written
Wed Sep 15 14:58:34 CEST 2004 Another line written
Wed Sep 15 14:59:34 CEST 2004 Another line written
Wed Sep 15 15:00:34 CEST 2004 Another line written
Wed Sep 15 15:01:34 CEST 2004 Another line written
Wed Sep 15 15:02:34 CEST 2004 Another line written

thank u zzynx. In this case the file "log.txt" is opened and closed every minute. can u change the code, that the run() method work on a filestream (writer) may be as global variable??

thank u
