Quartz is an open source job-scheduling framework written entirely in Java and designed for use in both J2SE and J2EE applications. It offers great flexibility without sacrificing simplicity. You can create simple or complex schedules for executing any job. It includes features such as database support, clustering, plugins, prebuilt jobs for EJB, JavaMail and others, support for cron-like expressions, and many more.
What Is Quartz

Java Tiger, now a Java Tech called Quartz….
Does Sun Like Apple names?
Talk about trying to cause confusion.
I thought Quartz was a pdf based rendering technology from Apple.
Bad Sun, Bad!
Quartz (the job scheduler) has been around for awhile. When was Apple Quartz created or used officially… or even all that well known? I remember when Quartz (the job scheduler) came out and at the time I didn’t even think of Apple’s Quartz. Besides, the name makes sense as a job scheduler. What does it mean for the Apple code?
From the article:
“Quartz has been around for a while, although it has started to receive a lot of attention this year. It was created by James House and originally added as a SourceForge project in the spring of 2001. Over the next several years, a number of features and releases came, but it wasn’t until the project was moved to a new site and became part of the OpenSymphony family of projects, that it really started to take off and receive the attention it deserves.”
