How can I schedule a job which should call a servlet which is deployed in a weblogic server?

By whatever means your OS uses. cron for unix-based systems, something else for Windows.

yup..

We can schedule jobs in unix(cron, tools like TWS) and windows.

But i am not sure why we need to call a servlet from a scheduler. In general we call java class.

I will be happy if someone can tell me a scenario where we need to call a servlet.
