(EJB) Enterprise Job Scheduler

Currently Being Moderated

Paramus, NJ - August 27, 2001 - Indus Consultancy Services (ICS) today
announced the latest release of Kronos Enterprise Scheduler, a
full-featured job scheduling system written for the Enterprise Java
(J2EE) environment.

This version has a number of enhancements, including:

Support for pre-defined variables which can be used in e-mail messages,
or passed to command tasks as parameters. Variables supported in this
release include {JOBNAME}, {JOBID}, {TASKNAME}, {TASKID}, {JOBRUNID},
and {TRYNUMBER}. One of the most common uses of e-mail tasks is for
notification of job failure. Support for these pre-defined variables
makes it possible to include information about the job as part of the
failure notification.
Support for start and/or end dates for a job. This makes it possible to
define jobs in advance of when they need to begin being scheduled; when
the start date is reached, Kronos Enterprise Scheduler will
automatically begin scheduling the job. If an end date if defined, the
job will no longer be run once that date is reached, though it can still
be manually executed.
Support for one-time scheduling. A job can now be scheduled to execute
exactly once at a given date and time, rather than requiring a recurring
schedule as in previous releases.
Introduction of the concept of a "job execution". A job execution
consists of the originally scheduled job run, any retry runs, and any
failure task run. The Job Monitor now displays the status of job
executions, and has the ability to drill down into the details of the
runs that make up the execution. This provides the user with a more
concise and easy-to-read picture of the status of their jobs.
Limited support for file attachments with e-mail tasks.
