I am using Apache Derby database with Tomcat and am trying to implement the following ideas:
- everyday at 9 pm for e.g. the database must create a new record/row in a table
- everyday at 9 pm for e.g. the database must modify an existing record/row's information
My web application will be up always once started.
Right now I'm trying to implement the ideas using some Java+JDBC class with timer task etc. I've a question: will such program runs in background?
Could you please guide me and tell if I'm going in right direction? Further, I would appreciate if you could give me any other tips that could help in implementing my ideas.
Many thanks in advance!
