Hi, how do I setup a servlet to execute a method every 3 hours. The method does nothing special it reads a URL with a table and detects cahneges in the table. Changes are then saved to DB or HD. The method itself is not a problem. I am trying to figure out how to do the polling Can I have a service methode with Infinite loop and thread that sleeps for 3 hours or is there a better way. Thanks for you help. http://galileo.spaceports.com/~ibidris/
