How to automate task in jsp?

I want to create an sms messaging website using jsp. The sms i believe would be ez, i would just have to use sockets in a bean. However there is a specific functionality i want to implement where my website would send a dummy sms message every 5 minutes to the sms server just to test what speed the server is accepting messages at. This way i can display the server speed to users when the come to my site. My problem is i am not sure how to implement this functionality in jsp. It is a process that needs to happen like a new thread. It should happen whether or not people are visiting the website and it needs to happed every 5 minutes. I am wondering if this functionality could only be setup by the webserver or is there some way in jsp i could use a bean to do this.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated
