    How to start a socket client connection with EJB3 timer bean

    1007525
      Hi,

      I have some embedded systems (with web server) putting their states, sensor values into an XML file.
      <sensor1>
      <temp>21.4</temp>
      <unit>°C</unit>
      </sensor1>

      Now I played a little with EJB3.
      I want to start a timer bean in a 10second interval which retrieves the IP of registered devices from a databases, opens client sockets with a Thread Pool and retrieves the XML file over HTTP GET of each device listed in the db.

      Is it possbile with EJB3?
      Could anybody give me a suggestion how to start thread based background services like that within EJB3 timer bean?

      Cheers
