not sure why you would want to use threads for this
if you want to run the code at a certain time use the windows scheduler

Just to enumerate the common possibilities:

1. Use Unix/Linux cron and run the program under a batch script. Windows also has this ability, although the scheduler mechanism is different.

2. Set up a timer task thread (which you did).

3. Incorporate Quartz Scheduler and let it do cron-like functions. You'd normally only do this in the case where a long-running application (stand-alone or webapp) is present to house the quartz manager threads and the scheduling requirements are fairly complex.

Incidentally, one of the best ways to "hang" shutdown of a web application server is to run a scheduler inside a webapp. Until ALL threads - including the scheduler threads - are terminated, the appserver will probably not shut down. In the specific case of Tomcat, the appserver will definitely not shut down. You can remedy this by terminating the scheduler in a servlet's destroy() method,
