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.

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

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)
