Hi All,

I have a requirement to check a web service just after sending a message.

Requirement is like,

1. Send the JMS message to external system.
1.1 They may process it or may not.
2. I need to check the status of the already sent message in 5 seconds after sending it to the external system.

Could anyone tell me what may be be best approach to do it?

Thanks in advance,

Check out java.util.Timer and TimerTask. Or -if there is no rush to finish the current thread- just do a Thread.sleep(5000).
