    Timer service calling an EJB

    Justin Dickmann Newbie

      Can someone advise me on how I could design/Implement a Timer service that could call an Entity EJB.

      I have an EJB that needs to tell a timer service to basically call method A() in time X seconds on EJB Z.

      I know there is talk of this in EJB2.1 Spec but how can I achieve the same result with the current JBoss Implementation.

      Has anyone done this sort of thing before?.

      Can I spawn a thread in an EJB? I know the Spec says I cannot is there another way?

      Can JMS help me here? Can I get the JMS server to send a message at a specific time?

      -Justin.
