I have made a jsp which sends emails for birthday and marriage anniversary to various staff people taking their birthdates/anniversary dates from the database.
Now I want it to run automatically every morning at 9 am and send respective mails every day.
Do Java or Tomcat provide any task scheduler..?
Thanks in Advance....

Technically speaking, no -- that's the job of the host operating system. Windows provides a control panel doodad (Task Scheduler?) to accomplish this, and UNIX derivatives have at / cron. Learn how yours works, then create an entry pointing it at a little program that requests the JSP page so it can do whatever it does.
