I am having a runnable class, where in the run() method I have a switch statement.
In each case of the switch statement I want to invoke a function to generate some data then call Thread.sleep(milliseconds);

However the switch is visited only once.

//I want to implement my thread as a timer

The thread is not working as a timer.
I thought that after the sleeping time for the thread is going to finish the switch is going to be visited again and the function will be called again but this is not happening.

Here is the run method
the print statement is only printed once..
    public void run(){
        switch (model){
            case RANDOMWALK:
                generateRandomWalkStream();
                break;
 
            case MYDATASET1:
                generateMyDataset1();
                break;
 
            case MYDATASET2:
                
                try{
                    generateMyDataset2();
                    System.out.println("I am here");
                    Thread.sleep(dataArrivalRate);
                }
                catch(InterruptedException ex){}
                break;
 
            default:
                generateRandomWalkStream();
                break;
        }
    }
