[Jersey] Re: running a parallel polling thread when the webapp gets deployed

perhaps i have to get more specific :)

i have a root resource A.
this resource is called whenever a client tries to access the resource. if i
instantiate a class B in the constructor of the resource A, this class will
be instantiated every time a client accesses my webapplication.

what i need is a class that is instantiated only once (when the webapp is
deployed) and runs all the time.

the resources of my webapplication write into a database. now i need a
mailing service that sends emails according to the data in the database. so
i need only one instantiation of the mailing service that polls the database
all the time.

do you have any ideas, how i can achieve that? thanks in advance
