Hi all, i have a java EE aplication and option for downloading calendar (that can be imported in outlook). What i want to do is to download the calendar automatically every day in particular time. I want to add this option to prevent logging into an application every day and downloading it manually. Is it possible somehow to set an absolute file system path and call the download action in scheduled time. Thanks in advanced

Sounds like you need a cron job.
