EJB scheduler and thread synchronization

I have an EJB scheduled job run at 00:30AM every day, it will read an external file in the system, like /usr/myproject/feed.xml. inside the scheduler, I didn't create any multiple threads.

Question is, when I deploy codes to multiple cluster / instances, do I need to worry about synchronized issue ? is it possible that the feed.xml is accessed by two threads from two instances at the same time ?

Which version of EJB are you using? If it is 3.1, you can create an EJB as a singleton with the @Singleton annotation - this along with @Schedule annotation should make it simpler to wrote code.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
