Standalone application in JBoss

I have an application, which connects to some DB and based on some values, updates some values in some other DB, after some specified time interval. I am using Quartz for scheduling the lookup activity.

Would it make sense to run this in JBoss or as a standalone application? I understand JBoss is an application server. In my scenario would I derive any benefit if I go for JBoss?

I am more of a Swing developer and have used Tomcat till now for my applets/servlets and JSP. Any ideas to point me in the right direction will be most appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,
If you are just going to update database values and going to schedule it then a standalone programe is the best way to do it. You don't need an application server here.

I don't see anything here, which requires a application server.
