reading data from xml file asynchronously

I have a xml file and would like to read data from the xml file every 10 seconds. I want to run this process once in every 10 seconds as this file is updated freqently.
please note that the daemon thread which reads the xml data should run continously for ever.
Can I implement the process using java.util.Timer?
Any sample code and suggestions would be of great help as I'm new to Java.
Thanks in Advance,

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
