Anyone have a good way to transfer execution from a Timer's Thread back to the Thread that called it when times up?

    Which Timer are we talking about here, the one from java.util or the SDK one?

    If you are just looking to link something to the tail of another thread Thread.join() is what you are after. This will pause the thread that it is called from until the thread you are joining completes.

    I'm using the AMX one out of laziness. It is being called from a thread that is handling IP communication. I need the thread to pause until it is closer to the increment of a minute so that it can update time on a device that doesn't accept seconds. Currently this code runs in the timers thread so the offset across multiple threads becomes progressively greater. Can join be used with the AMX Timer? Doesn't it's thread keep running since all Timers use the same thread?

    I was trying to use a CountDownLatch, but it is throwing an IOException when it encounters the await().

    			//cdl = new CountDownLatch(1);

    				e.printStackTrace();

    	}
    }
    
    This code requires Master Firmware 4.x.x Java Libraries

    Found a solution, it doesn't even require the new libraries. I'm kind of disappointed.
