    jar client activation

    Eduardo Jones Newbie

      I need to know how to activate jar client application to run into jboss like application-deployment configuration in Oracle 9iAS.

      This jar application implements a TimerTask job which must run once on a day. Its implemented but i can´t make it run.

      In Oracle 9iAS needs to be inluded into the application-deployment.xml file, but i can't find an equivalence into JBoss 3.2.8.

          Hi  Eduardo,

          welcome to the forum.


          As most of the people here might not know Oracle9iAS (me included) please describe what you want to achieve, maybe attach sources.

          Also you should figure out what EJB version your application use.


          As you talk about JBoss 3.2.8 (very old) I suppose it's EJB2.x?

            I know it's old, but it´s work fine.

            I need to know how can i configure JBoss to execute a jar-client when it´s starts.

            The jar-client has a Timer process that must execute once in a day, at an especific hour.

            In Oracle 9iAS exists a file where you include the applications (ear and/or jar) that must deploy at startup. In JBoss you just need to put de ear file in the deploy directory and it's deployed at startup.

            I've put de jar-client file in the lib directory and it is not activated at startup. Then i put it in the deploy directory and it was deployed, but it did not execute at especific hour.


            What i need to do to indicate to JBoss that file must execute?

              The schedule timer are available in EJB3.1 (so to new for JBoss3.2)


              The old timers are need to be started, then you might have a intervall for it.

              You might use Quarz but I never used it and I'm not sure whether you will have it.


              But how your timer code looks like? I think this execution is very 9iAS specific.

                  AFAIK there is no chance to get this working as is in JBoss 3.2.


                  The only solution that I know you can find in my last post.

                    Thanks for your answer.


                    I'll try to implemented it with Quartz, but i'd never used it before.
