EJB Timer or Quartz

Hi All,
I was wondering if anyone has used the Quartz job scheduling system. I'm supposed to use it in a coming project. And I don't know if there are any limitations in the EJB Timer service that incites me to go for the Quartz system.

Best regards,

I have successfully used quartz in one of my projects (actually it's an ongoing project, so technically I'm still using it ). Honestly, I only took a very brief, cursory look at the other timers, so I cannot compare them comprehensively. But, quartz worked exceedingly well for me, it configures easily yet has a lot of options, it works as designed, never failed me, all in all I'm very happy with it.
I agree. Here's the link:
