Creating service or daemon in Java

Hello Ranchers,

I have to work on a project called Backup and Recovery. In that I have to provide a functionality of schedule backup.
So I thought of creating a service or daemon that will invoke my tool at scheduled time.

Am I going in right direction? Your valuable suggestion is welcomed. Thanks

Sounds like a job for cron (on Unix/Linux) or Task Scheduler (on Windows).
