Using Timer

I wish to run a certain task every night at midnight. I was wondering if someone could tell me if my code is correct.




I posted this in the java beginner forum, however nobody answered my question. Was hoping that someone could help me here.

Thank you for your time

It looks good except that I think you should probably use scheduleAtFixedRate instead in order to maintain your 0:00:00 execution time (otherwise the start time can drift towards times when people will be using the system, assuming that's why you want to start at midnight).
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
