Thanks & Regards

What's happening here is that running Timer won't keep the JVM from exiting. You start a timer, and then main() returns; at that point, the program stops, long before the Timer fires. If you added a line line

try { Thread.sleep(70000); } catch (InterruptedException ex) {}

to the end of your program, main will sleep until after the Timer fires, and you will see your output.
