Class TimerEngine


public class TimerEngine extends Object
The timer engine handles timeouts and scheduled events.

It can be used to register a timeout for a task that runs in a thread. When timeout is reached, the method ITimeoutListener.onTimeout() is called from another thread, informing the running thread of this timeout. It is up to the running thread to take appropriate action.

It can also handle a scheduled periodic event notification that also runs in a thread.
