Hi, Chris.

Looks great!  Long overdue since java.util.Timer was added around Spring 1999 during JDK 1.3 development.

The type sun.misc.Timer has long since been replaced by the standard java.util.Timer. As an unneeded part of sun.misc, sun.misc.Timer should be removed from the platform. This is part of the larger cleanup of legacy unused classes from sun.misc, see JDK-6852936 [1].

sun.misc.Timeable will also be removed as part of this issue.
