    Default Thread for a given time window

    I'd like to run a Listener in a Thread from a certain point of time on for a certain amount of time (some hours).
    I found Timer and TimerTask classes, however JavaDoc tells me that TimerTasks should complete quickly, which is not the case for my Thread. Is there a better and easy possibility to achieve the task?

    What are you trying to do? What do you mean by "Listener in a Thread"? Listener for what?
