i am using a thread to update a moving ticker on the screen like the bootom of a news channel.
it's something like this :

The trouble is that it is having high CPU usage about 25% due to which my other applications are having trouble.

What should i do to reduce the CPU usage?

Edit : please close it. it is being discussed in the Swings sub-forum. Thanks
