I am making and schedule job (quartz libraries) and I have the following doubt.

I have this code in a class which is load in a jsp page.

And the jsp

It works perfectly, but I would like to know if instead of in the execute method I could run something execute a web ( like a href)

You could open a UrlConnection in the execute method. Is the web page in the same application as the scheduler? If so, you could skip the URL and call the action directly.

Is that code sitting inside a JSP ? eek ! Never write code inside a JSP

And if you are looking for a reporting solution, have you considered crystal reports / Jasper / BIRT ? You could in theory run reports at regular intervals and export them in a variety of formats by opening a URLConnection

This code is in a servlet.
I am using pentaho reporting. Report designer 3.5. .prpt files.
I will try with the url connection
Thank you!
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
