Scheduler is a thin wrapper around quartz developed as a Sakai JSF tool. There were a few steps taken to Quartz up with Sakai. First in the component directory there is a quartz.properties file. This file has been modified to use a particular database vendor. On startup this scheduler tool will: 1. Replace the instnace name quartz uses in a cluster with the property serverId from a call to ServerConfigurationService via a Spring MethodInvokingFactoryBean. This step ensures that all nodes in a cluster will have a unique name. Note: when using scheduler in a cluster set the quartz property org.quartz.jobStore.isClustered = true 2. Quartz has been configured to use Sakai's datasource by implementing org.quartz.utils.ConnectionProvider. To use an alternative data source: a.) remove property org.quartz.dataSource.myDS.connectionProvider.class=org.sakaiproject.component.app.scheduler.ConnectionProviderDelegate from quartz.properties b.) specify datasource properties in sakai.properties to override properties in quartz.properties 2. Find all jobs specified in components.xml. If the classloader cannot find the job class, this job is removed from the list of jobs in quartz. To specify a new job: 1. Implement the org.quartz.Job interface and place the job class somewhere in the components directory. 2. In components.xml there is a managed bean called org.sakaiproject.api.app.scheduler.SchedulerManager with a property qrtzJobs. Add the fully qualified class name of your job to this set. Using the scheduler: 1. Create a new job from the ui. Add a trigger to the job with a cron expression. The job is now scheduled. 2. It is possible to unschedule a job by removing all associated triggers. When removing the job, all associated triggers will also be removed.
