Scheduling a job inside webapp

If my assignment said "Architecture should be based on JEE Platform", can I choose Quartz as the Scheduler ?Though third-party, it is a java-based api, right ?

Any other options to trigger a Java Timer task from a webapp?

Hi Anila,

Even i have the same situation and got same doubt. I have used EJB timers and started the timer from controller startup.

Hi Anila,

if you can use JEE 6 / EJB 3.1 you could simply resort to the built-in Timer Service. It has a lot of features similar to Quartz (for example calendars and a Cron-like syntax) and it's very easy to use. Just have a look at the examples from Oracle's JEE tutorial ;-)

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
