Job Scheduling

Does anyone know of a decent open source implementation of a J2EE compliant job scheduler? I want to run regular automatic jobs (e.g. once a week or once a day) but don't want to rely on cron to do it unless I can help it, partially because I need to be able configure the frequency of jobs from the web application.
Any pointers are greatly appreciated.
Jesse

If your Application Server supports JMX then you could always use Timer Beans (this is what we do). If you don't want to mess with JMX then checkout Quartz.
