Why opt for reinventing the wheel?
Ycan use a Quartz Timer which is configurable via XML but if you are not so keen about third party tools, go for a JDK Timer.

Cheers,
Raj.

We use cron on Unix. There is also a Task Scheduler built into Windows but I don't have any experience with that.
Your team should get over their resistance to third-party libraries. Third party libraries are like getting someone to work on your project for free. In most cases you get well-tested code and prompt support from an experienced community. Then you can concentrate on solving your business problems instead of working on infrastructure like timers.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
