Two ways:
1. Use the scheduler provided by OS, i.e. Scheduled Task in Windows, cronjob in Unix etc ( applicable for stand-alone application only)
2. Use a Timer like this (stand-alone application/servlet):

java.util.Timer t = new java.util.Timer();
timer.schedule(new YourTimerTask(), 0, 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24);
// the second parameter is the delay before the first time that runs the code  (in millisecond)
// the last parameter is one day in millisecond

class YourTimerTask extends TimerTask {
      public void run() {
             // code that you want to run evey day
      }
}

so only I have to run  tis code once and it will work every day??
java.util.Timer t = new java.util.Timer();
timer.schedule(new YourTimerTask(), 0, 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24);
// the second parameter is the delay before the first time that runs the code  (in millisecond)
// the last parameter is one day in millisecond

class YourTimerTask extends TimerTask {
      public void run() {
             // code that you want to run evey day
      }
}

The above timer.schedule will set up a timer that schedules to call your YourTimerTask.run() once a day.

You should put it inside the init() of your servlet class (if you are using servlet) or the main method of your class (if you are using stand-alone application)
