Multiple Java Timers...
Posted on 2009-02-16
I have a need for a timer in my program which will be triggered at every n hours. Now because of a known issue which may happen once in a while there will be a stack overflow in that timer thread, causing that thread to crash. This also means that my timer is now no longer there..
What is the best way to prevent this? I know the stack overflow needs to be fixed, that is being worked on, however in the meantime, all I can think is another timer keeping track of the first timer.. I have had issues in the past when I have 2 timers then one of them fails to fire very quickly (no stack overflows then).. Pointers or suggestions?
