News: Quartz Open Source J2EE Job Scheduler Beta Released

  1. Quartz 1.0 Beta 2 hase been released. Quartz is an open source, enterprise-class job scheduler for integration with stand-alone java applications and full-blown J2EE applications. The market for J2EE Job Schedulers has grown slowly over the years, Quartz is now the fourth (but the only free and open source) product out of a list that includes Flux, Kronos, and Tempo.

    Advanced features will soon include clustering, participation in XA transactions and JMS integration.

    Quartz is distributed under a license similar to the APL (Apache) an BSD licenses, which makes it free for commercial use, and just about anything else you'd like to do with it.

  2. This is awesome!!!! Everyone should download this and try it.
  3. Addressed to Quartz developers[ Go to top ]


    the archive quartz1_0-beta2.tar.gz taken from sf.net is corrupted. but the zip is fine.
  4. Is there a brief document detailing what are the functionalities that are available and where and how it can be used?

  5. Try this URL http://www.part.net/quartz.html and click on the "Features" sub-menu on the left, for a list of features (and description of environments for its use).

    Note that the clustering, XA, and JMS features are not yet fully implemented, but will be soon.

    Also it should be very painless to download the release, and run the example program. Looking at the example program should give you an idea of its ease-of-use.

  6. I tried the example, it looks great and works!!! I tried accessing the http://www.part.net/quartz.html site, but I believe the server is not up.
    Is there any other location where I can look for the documentation.
    I looked at the example code and I need to find how I can use it for my requirements and make any necessary changes if needed.
  7. It is now May 23. Still no link for product information other than the javadoc?
