    Graphical or console? Either can be done with a Timer, but the graphical case (a Swing app) should use a javax.swing.Timer.

    There is a tutorial for most everything in Java somewhere on the web. Not all of them are good, however. A good place to start is with the Oracle tutorials, like this one on the Timer. You might also be interested in the main index for Swing tutorials, since I'm not sure what your experience level with Swing is. I recommend you ignore Oracle's suggestion to use Netbeans with the GUIBuilder and learn to code Swing by hand. (Using Netbeans without the GUIBuilder is fine.)
