How about the following:

while (counter < 1000){
// (Enclose in exception handling)

CEHJ, I didn't understand the logic behind the solution provided by you. Are you assuming that conuter is being incremented exactly once per millisecond ?

guochu, if you really need the value of "counter" after executing this loop for exactly 1s, then refer to the attached code snippet else if you simply want to make your application rest for 1s, you may replace this loop with the following statement :

try { Thread.sleep(1000) } catch (InterruptedException e) {}

long starttime = System.currentTimeMillis();
long endtime = starttime + 1000;
while (endtime >= System.currentTimeMillis()) {
