Cancelling timers

To cancel a timer (one-shot or periodic), call cancelTimer specifying the timer id:

Cancelling a timer
package io.vertx.playground;
import io.vertx.core.Vertx;
public class CancellationExample {
private static int counter = 0;
public static void main(String... args) {
Vertx vertx = Vertx.vertx();
long timerId = vertx.setPeriodic(1000, id -> {
System.out.println("Hello " + ++counter);
if (counter == 2) {
System.out.println("Cancelling task");
vertx.cancelTimer(id);
}
});
}
}
