    launch an "EJB daemon"

    Adrian Wilford Newbie


      I'm new with JBoss, and I don't know how to deploy many things. In this case, I need to create an EJB, to be activated at some specific times, along a day. To do that, I think I need a stateless EJB which is launched by the JBoss, running an infinite loop and scanning system time.

      My questions are two. Do you think this is a good solution? And... how can I launch an EJB from JBoss? Until this moment, all my EJB were been launched from servlets...

          It might make more sense to use the JMX Timer service to schedule your stateless session bean method invocations.

          Have a look at


          This should exist on all J2EE-compliant app servers, but if that is not important, I believe jboss has a scheduler service that is supposedly easier to use. For that, look at scheduler-service.xml that should exist in your deploy directory.
