Tutorial :What are the alternatives to the Open Source Job Scheduler? [closed]



Question:

Are there any alternatives to the Open Source Job Scheduler? I'm looking for a way to gain more control over scheduled work tasks than plain cron is offering, but haven't found anything else but Quartz, which isn't language-neutral.


Solution:1

There's JAMS. http://www.mvpsi.com/JobScheduling.aspx

Especially awesome if you're using OpenVMS


Solution:2

We use JAMS as well but it's not cheap. When I hear "open source" I think "free" and JAMS is far from free. My boss negotiated the agreement so I don't know all of the gory details but I know we spent in excess of $35,000 for JAMS

By the way, I should mention that it is a great tool and their support is awesome


Solution:3

I'm not sure from your question, but I think SuperScheduler could match your requirements: http://www.acelet.com/super/SuperScheduler/index.html


Solution:4

I can't imagine what do you expect from it, if you want "task scheduler" than you probably want to specify interval and task itself. that's exactly what cron is for.


Solution:5

Someone mentioned JAMS on OpenVMS. We use JAMS on Windows with UNIX and Linux Agents. They have a Cron converter as well which is not perfect but it does about 90% of the work moving Cron jobs into JAMS. website is jamsscheduler.com and jamssupport.com
