Instancing a new thread in Spring to execute tasks periodically

I have a dashboard made with Spring that must control some task executions. The basic idea is to have a thread to send this tasks periodically to remote trackers. How can I instance this thread? I've been reading a little and some people say that is not a good idea to use thread. Would this cause a problem with Spring life cycle? Is there another way to have a method called periodically?

Spring has support for Task Scheduling. Find more information here:

E.g. you can configure scheduled task in your application context like so:

<task:scheduled-tasks scheduler="myScheduler">
  <task:scheduled ref="beanA" method="methodA" fixed-delay="5000"/>
</task:scheduled-tasks>

<task:scheduler id="myScheduler" pool-size="10"/>
