I want to run a cron job from my java applications using Quartz. The thing is I can not understand how to go about it. i have read their documentation and examples but they do not present a clear pciture as to how Quartz can be used to schedule jobs.
Can anyone give me step by step instructions about how to go about it. I know i am asking a tedious explanation but any help will be greatly appreciated.
thanks and regards smriti

You need to: 1) Get a scheduler 2) One or more jobdetails (each jobdetail will be associated with a class that does the work (by implementing one of the job interfaces). 3) For each jobdetail you need a crontrigger. 4) Schedule the jobdetail with the crontrigger.
I don't have a good and clean example but I'll extract some code that I'm using that might give you some ideas. (Code below is taken from a "when-I-have-time-over" project and is slightly modified since it is spread around in a couple of helper classes as of now)
