Running a J2EE project on WAS at a regular interval  RSS feed

I am going create a J2EE project which might be a servlet or EJB to poll (or check) any change in a DB and do some business logic or mapping everytime when the DB is changed. So, my question is how I can configure a J2EE project to run at a regular interval, says 5 mins?

Since my WAS is running on J2EE 1.3 so I cannot use Timer approach which is available on EJB running on J2EE 1.4.

Also, no client is needed to invoke the program, meaning that there is no client to make a web request to servlet nor call the remote interface of EJB

The java.util.Timer and TimerTask classes can be used for scheduling tasks for repeated execution.
