      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.6.0_26"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.1-b02, mixed mode)


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Linux ykarachiwala 3.0.0-15-generic #26-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 20 17:23:00 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When using ScheduledExecutorService there is issue :
      Tasks scheduled before system time change (through ntpd) are not executed on delay specified. Have no logs for same as nothing happens :(.

      ScheduledExecutorService works fine on Windows. Problem is only on 64 bit Linux based system running 64 bit JVM. It works fine on 64 bit linux running 32 bit JVM...strange. Have not found any reference of same on any blogs either.

      http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9044423/java-scheduler-which-is-completely-independent-of-system-time-changes

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Run following program and keep changing time:

      package test;

      import java.io.IOException;
      import java.util.Date;
      import java.util.concurrent.Executors;
      import java.util.concurrent.ScheduledExecutorService;
      import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

      /**
       * @author yogesh
       *
       */
      public class TimerCheck implements Runnable {

          ScheduledExecutorService worker;


          public TimerCheck(ScheduledExecutorService worker) {
              super();
              this.worker = worker;
              this.worker.schedule(this, 1, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
          }

          private static void update() {
              System.out.println("TimerCheck.update() "+new Date(System.currentTimeMillis()));
          }

          @Override
          public void run() {
                  update();
                  worker.schedule(this, 1, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
          }

          /**
           * @param args
           */
          public static void main(String[] args) {
              ScheduledExecutorService worker = Executors.newScheduledThreadPool(1);
              new TimerCheck(worker);
          }

      }

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Task scheduled should run despite of time switch backward.
      ACTUAL -
      Task is stalled.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

              new TimerCheck(worker);
          }

      }

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Works well with 32 bit JVM
