The java.util.Timer and TimerTask classes can schedule events that occur in regular intervals (e.g., every 24 hours), or at specific points in time (e.g, every Friday night at midnight). See here for examples e367 and e368.

Assuming you have a web app, you can run code at web app startup time by configuring a ServletContextListener and its contextInitialized method.
