You can do that with timers...
But,that logic can be simply implemented like

Spawn a thread , call the method depending upon your condition( simply infinite times)

If you want to create a windows service programatically then Java service wrapper will come to your help.

This is a nice article on using Java service wrapper.

apigee, a better way to API!

Be Clear When you asking Question.

I think it is Windows Task Scheduler starting a Application rather than method.

Anyway,Java is not suited when you writing windows services and calling lots of Win32 API or any native calls.
