The new Java Based JobScheduler Agent is here, which will be exciting news for everyone working with JobScheduler.

The new Java Based JobScheduler Agent brings a major game change to the role and functionalities of the JobScheduler Agent, removing the need to distinguish between supported platforms (Windows, Linux) and platforms with limited support (Solaris, AIX, HP-UX).
The Agent can be be installed on any operating system that supports a Java Virtual Machine.

This is a first technical preview with an expected final release as near as the 3rd quarter 2015.

The JobScheduler Agent provides the following additional benefits:

  • Simplified Deployment and Zero Configuration after installation
  • More flexible remote job scheduling than SSH solutions
  • Can be used in large clusters of hundreds of installations controlled by a single JobScheduler Master
  • This first milestone of the JobScheduler Agent provides the following major feature sets:
    • Shell Script execution
    • Logging and Return Parameter Handling to a JobScheduler Master
    • Job Monitor Scripts & limited API Job execution

Additional license fees will not apply for users migrating to this platform-independent Agent.
