The enterprise version has an ejb timer based scheduler. See the docs for this
Thanks for the reply!
Can you tell me which docs you are referrring to?
Naturally that was the first place I looked prior to posting. However I can find nothing in the user guide. Section 13 being the only real mention of Schedulers.
I have successfully started the JobExecutor using a MBean. Is there any issues with this?
In you guys expert opinion, ;), is this a reasonable way to do this?
Did you check chapter 9?
I see nothing unreasonable in starting the job executor from an MBean. But why bother, when the enterprise module offers you a JMS message service and an EJB scheduler service in a portable package.
Because I do not wish to deploy enterprise ear and it was easier to write MBean to accomplish the task than search for examples or documentation on how to do it any other way!
It only took 15 mins to write MBean.
