A book about rethinking Java EE Patterns

Comments:

sleep as a method of TimeUnit, is this OOP? I would rather like to have Thread.sleep(Duration)

I once saw in a JavaOne session that there is a sleep method in some JDK class that does not throw an InterruptedException. Do you know which class it is?

What about sleep in JEE environments?
As already stated in http://www.adam-bien.com/roller/abien/entry/can_i_start_threads_in one must not manage Threads, and sleep is a managing action, even if you use it through TimeUnit (which effectively calls Thread.sleep).

I've seen proposals to use Timers, but that's a big overhead if you just want to have a very small delay between retries with unstable resources.
