Can you provide an example of what the Schedule instance would be used for? Reason I ask is that there are several ways you might choose to integrate scheduling capability with your SY app. There is already a quartz-based scheduler available for triggering services. I haven't tried it, but in theory you should be able to consume a SwitchYard service from a bean annotated with @Schedule. Ditto for including @Schedule on a bean that already has @Service, although this is the same capability that's already provided by schedule bindings.
