Java Time Delay

I am having trouble with the following bit of code.

//Send Creation email
ListServDAO.sendCreateEmail(orgId, full, request.getSession().getServletContext());
//Force a 1 minute pause
Timer timer = new Timer();
timer.schedule(new TimerTask() {
public void run() {
//Send add members email
ListServDAO.sendAddMembersEmail(orgId, request.getSession().getServletContext());
}, 0, 60 * 1000);

The sendAddMembersEmail function does not wait 1 minute to send after the sendCreateEmail function call. I am not sure why it is not waiting even after reading the java API. I do not wish to use the Thread.sleep method because I want the user to be able to use the application while waiting for the emails to send.


You have an extra zero.

What you are calling is Delayed with a Fixed-Delay Repeat Execution and what you want is a Single Delay Non Repeat execution.
