Schedule AsyncTask to run every minute


What is the best practice to schedule an AsyncTask to have it run every minute (note that after the AsyncTask has finished I should be able to update the UI).

I'm not intending on using a Service because these tasks should only run when app is active.

EDIT: What the AsyncTask is just downloading JSON data from a webserver (which I need to update UI). The JSON data is pretty small a couple of kilobytes.

You have to use a Timer:

timer.schedule(asyncTask, 0, 50000); //execute in every 50000 ms

You can update your UI in the onPostExecute() overrided method of the AsyncTask class.
