I have Two main threads which collect data and scheduled to do so 1) in every minute 2) in every 10 mts from two source
using Executors.newScheduledThreadPool

Each thread in turn spawns 10 thread using Executors.newFixedThreadPool after the job is completed it keeps on running
after one minute hread one spawns new 10 thread again

I want it to reuse the same 10 threads how to do it or terminate the threads once job is over

If you want to use the same 10 threads, make the ExecutorService with the 10 threads in a scope outside the runnable method of the task being run, then access the Service from inside the scheduled task to schedule the new task.

If you want to make sure the 10 threads in the ExecutorService get shutdown then call service.shutdown() after the 10 tasks are finished being scheduled.

I agree. Here's the link:
