How to Make a Program Sleep for a Pre-determined Period

At times, you may want to make your application sleep for a determined period pending some other action. This is very easily achieved in Java with threads.

Code sample:

import java.util.*;

public class SleepForSomePeriod 
   public static void main(String args[]) 
      SleepForSomePeriod sleepForSomePeriod = new SleepForSomePeriod();
   private void proceed()
         System.out.println(new Date()); 
         Thread.sleep(3000); //3 seconds 
         System.out.println(new Date()); 
      }catch (Exception e) 
         System.out.println("Exception: " + e); 

Expected output:
