JobScheduler - Overview
JobScheduler is used for the automation of, for example, processes and can use the proprietary SQL Server, Oracle or DB2
database systems or the free MySQL, PostgreSQL or Firebird.
You can use JobScheduler to launch executable files and shell scripts and to run database procedures automatically.
Jobs are configurable as Web Services thereby providing interoperability with enterprise applications.
JobScheduler is a batch program, operating on Unix systems as a demon and on Windows as a service.
JobScheduler uses an XML file for the configuration of executable files or shell scripts and
to set the timing and frequency of job starts.
JobScheduler processes both sequential and parallel jobs.
Jobs can be organised into job chains to ensure sequential processing
and multiple instances can be run for scalability.
Job starts can be triggered by directory notification,
built-in calendars or the web user interface,
or by other applications (Java, scripting languages) via JobScheduler API.
