Insight to Quartz Scheduler

Hi All,

I have a specification. It goes like, I have to develop an application that would send a reminder mail to a list of people, reminding them of a particular action, say every monday, morning.

I came across this quartz scheduler, to do this job.

Since I am a newbie to the J2EE technologies, I would like to know..

1. Whether this could be done with quartz?
2. If so, where do I start?(Learning Quartz)
3. If not, what are the other things that we can use for this?

Any help would be highly appreciated....

Thanks a lot, in advance....

We had used quartz in our earlier application, mainly because weblogic 6.1
had deprecated their timer classes. As far as I remember quartz is easy to
use. You have to extend the class, and implement the method

This would be your job. Then use the to
invoke your jobs.

There definitely are other services you can use. If you are looking at J2EE
applications, you can probably make use of the EJB timer services included
in the EJB 2.1 specs.

Hope this helps,

Hi Spilin,

Thanks for this information. Is there any sample code or some good starting point to this quartz?

Hi guys,

I can thoroughly recommend Quartz - it makes scheduling easy-peezy.
Try the quartz website tutorial for sample code.
