    Where is JBoss AS heading in terms of scheduling ?

      Hello,

      I'm interested in knowing where JBoss is heading regarding job scheduling .

      I read in an older post (back in 2003) that Scott Stark seemed, a while ago, be willing to use Quartz as JBoss scheduler and that this would effect EJB Timer Service as well. ? What is the status on this issue ?

      Can anyone explain where JBoss is heading in terms of scheduling service ?

      It would be nice to know what are JBoss engineer's thoughts about scheduling considering :

      - JBoss version 3 already offered some basic scheduling services. This service was based on java.util.Timer and java.util.TimerTask utility classes.

      - JBoss AS 4 and EJB 2.1 offer now the timer bean which deprecate former scheduling service of JBoss version 3 (does it really ?)

      - There are more complete scheduling offererings in the open source market, such as Quartz.

      What is JBoss strategy on this subject ?
