So, this means there is no way of implementing a scheduled service in a limited server "like" Tomcat?
web application that runs at scheduled/periodic intervals

What I was basically wondering was; how to create a timed service using servlets and JSP's because these only act on when there are explictly called, and this timed service always runs in the background. Is it possible to create a periodic service like this in a server like Tomcat or do I really need to upgrade to a full J2EE server that implements the full stack of J2EE services?[/QB]
