I have created a Window Service in java and also created one class using java.uti.Timer and java.uti.TimerTask.

I extended my class by TimerTask, so i have to implement run() methord in my class and i have done that.

My programme is running fine like i want to call my run methord after every 1 min which is running successfully but when i write some methord in my run() methord like

In the above case it goes to a() methord do its work and just dies out there , but it should continue as its in timer.

Can you please tell me that where i am lacking.
