If you've already got running infrastructure using Quartz service why you've decided to move this into EJB? I would suggest to do processing logic inside quartz and push results into Application Server using some JMS solution (HornetQ or ActiveMQ).
E.g. your quartz service performs some processing logic then sends serialized results to the application server using JMS queue/topic for additional purposes. Please provide more details about your solution and goals
I am just considering my options when migrating for jboss 4.2.3 that had quartz embedded and I used the resources adapter to have an MDB that uses quartz.
but now in jboss 7.1 quartz is not distributed and I was wondering if there is a replacement to it's capabilities.
basically my scenario is as follows -
I use an MDB registered to quartz to do some pulling on data
the data is analyzed
and than the whole cycle starts again.
the thing is i don't want the cycle to start again if the processing of the current data takes longer than the diff between the invocations.
i know i can always set the time longer, but it doesn't grantee that there won't be overlapping
