I'm afraid you believe wrong. Read the Javadoc again for the schedule method that takes a TimerTask and a long as parameters.

We don't need to see the source. Your original post showed us the problem - you are assuming the schedule method you are calling does something different to what it actually does. To do what you want to do you need to call one of the other overloaded versions of that method.

I didn't actually look at the RoseIndia link. If it says that the source code you posted should repeatedly run the task, then it is wrong.

Actually I was slightly mistaken. This program will run until Ctrl-C is pressed (because the Timer is never cancelled). It just won't repeatedly print out a message every second as the comment in the code suggests it will.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
