Running scheduled 'jobs' in OAS

I am using OAS 10g (OC4J) and have a need for 'jobs' to happen in the background at scheduled times.

These 'jobs', which are unrelated and function without interaction with each other, are :
1.) Retrieve relevant data from a table and export it to a flat file.
2.) Check data in the database and send emails to a list of recipients.

I am currently looking at using the open source J2EE job scheduler 'Quartz' by Opensymphony .

Has anyone used this successfully in OAS?

If yes, were there any problems with configuration and/or deployment?

Found better solution.

For anyone interested, OAS 10.1.3 has a new Scheduler feature for jobs that need to run at a scheduled time.
I agree. Here's the link:
