    TimerTask and JBoss Seam?

    Rocco None Newbie

      Hello friends,

      as the title indicates, I try to use Java TimerTask for job scheduling. Quartz seems to be a little bit overweighted for my purpose. When I start a simple TimerTask as seen below

      public class MyTask extends TimerTask {
           public MyTask() {}
           private Log log;
           public void run() {
               log.info(TEST LOG);


      I get a NullPointerException, because the Log cannot be found. I guess the TimerTask is running outside of the bean container or something. How can I use Seam Pojos in TimerTask? How can I pull the TimerTask into the container so that I can use seam?
      thx for reading
