A timer thread and url fetch thread in same activity.

 I am having problems with a timer that should fetch http results from
the web every 5 minutes.
I having problems with two threads - often I cannot even turn them off
or keep the timer going without upsetting the apple cart.

Should I start using wait() and notify(), a separate service or
continue trying to get them to be friends with each other in the same
activity. At present its all very badly behaved and I feel as though I
am juggling with marbles.

Just saying you're using two threads is a red flag. What apple cart?

Use a handler to schedule a message to go off in 5 minutes. When that
message is delivered, use an AsyncTask to do the fetch and handle the
results when it completes.

No raw threads necessary.
