I need to download some external file from http server periodically for further processing. I'm triggering the process using stateless session bean with @Schedule annotation on some method. Let's say method name is foo()
When TimerService invokes foo() I need to download file by URI from external http/ftp server, and pass it as stream into some long running processing logic. This is done once a day (maybe twice) and in automatical mode.
What is the best pattern or best practice to implement this using JBoss AS? Am I right with @Schedule annotation (or Quartz resource adapter)? What is the best practice of downloading file for further processing inside EJB?
