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.

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