The second technical preview of the new Java Based JobScheduler Agent is now available, further extending the Agent's capabilities. The Agent provides platform-independent, zero-configuration job scheduling capabilities for remote servers.

Amongst the improvements is the addition of two important feature sets that bring the Agent well on its way to being ready for use in production environments:

  • File Watching - the Agent now has almost the full set of file monitoring capabilities of a Master JobScheduler.
    This means that the Agent can now be used to provide more comprehensive monitoring of files on remote servers than is possible with SSH.
    See the Agent 'file_order_source' feature description for detailed information.
  • JITL Jobs - the Agent can now execute the majority of File Operation and Job Handling JITL jobs.
    A full list of the jobs that the Agent can execute is available in the Agent's Tested Features Page.
