I think that testing yourself is usually faster than posting a message on some forum, then waiting for a reply. In this case, you have proven just that. You got the test up and running before even one reply was posted.

It's not really a Java question either.

Yes it is. Quartz is a Java scheduler library.

Still found the confirmation quite useful to save me time testing it. There seems to be some confusion on the accepted values by looking at the table on http://www.quartz-scheduler.org/documentation/quartz-1.x/tutorials/crontrigger . It would appear 60 it's not an accepted value for seconds, minutes and hours. Even though it appears to work, wouldn't a 0 instead of 0/60 be the intended setup?

Thanks for the question/self answer!

Certainly it would in a crontab, so if Quartz uses the same format...

However, did you realize that you've revived a Thread that is nearly 3 years old?

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

Yes, it should be in other open source forum but still its inherited by java ;)

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I know. I was looking for the correct setup on hourly triggers and this one was the only one providing an exact example which came up on first page searches. So I guess its still of use nowadays to whomever comes accross such a question.
