Is there an elegant & easy way to kill a current(executing) TimerTask if a certain time has elapsed (Say 2 minutes). This situation can occur if my TimerTask is blocked on IO.
My code implements a TimeMonitor class and listener interface. Based on code from JavaWorld tips 125. http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/javatips/jw-javatip125.html
I am trying to stop the current executing TimerTask thread if a certain time has elapsed.
Here is the code.
TimeMonitorListener.java

TimeMonitor.java

Calling class with main method: Test.java
