Basically we had a java program which kept listening to tests whenever it
found one as part of automation api.It would pick any code changes to tests
through svn updates.But needed to exit every hour so that it could pick any
changes code to the java program itself and relaunch.
Moved the Timer aspect to java program itself.
Thanks both of you for your replies.
