Jumpstart your Angular applications with Indigo.Design, a unified platform for visual design, UX prototyping, code generation, and app development.

In this article, we will discuss how to configure "Quartz Scheduler" with a web application. As a first step create a web application and keep all the Quartz Scheduler dependent jars in classpath. Put the quartz.properties and jobs XML file under classes folder.

Let us create a job like shown below:

package com.smarttechies.job;

import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
import org.quartz.Job;
import org.quartz.JobExecutionContext;
import org.quartz.JobExecutionException;

public class MailSenderJob implements Job{

 Logger log = Logger.getLogger(MailSenderJob.class);

 @Override
 public void execute(JobExecutionContext pArg0) throws JobExecutionException {
 log.info("The mail sender job triggerd");
 //From here call the mail sender service
 }

}

The configuration of the above job is defined in the job configuration XML file.

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<job-scheduling-data xmlns="http://www.quartz-scheduler.org/xml/JobSchedulingData"
 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
 xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.quartz-scheduler.org/xml/JobSchedulingData http://www.quartz-scheduler.org/xml/job_scheduling_data_1_8.xsd"
 version="1.8">

<schedule>
 <job>
 <name>mailSenderJob</name>
 <group>MYJOB_GROUP</group>
 <description>This job will trigger mail service for every minute</description>
 <job-class>com.smarttechies.job.MailSenderJob</job-class>
 </job>

<trigger>
 <cron>
 <name>mailSenderTrigger</name>
 <group>MYTRIGGER_GROUP</group>
 <job-name>mailSenderJob</job-name>
 <job-group>MYJOB_GROUP</job-group>
 <!-- trigger every -->
 <cron-expression>0 0/1 * 1/1 * ? *</cron-expression>
 </cron>
</trigger>
</schedule>
</job-scheduling-data>

Now, we need to configure the Quartz listener in the web.xml. The listener creates Quartz scheduler and initializes the job when the application is deployed. The web.xml configuration is given below.

<listener>
 <listener-class>
 org.quartz.ee.servlet.QuartzInitializerListener
 </listener-class>
</listener>

It's time to build and deploy the web application. The log of the web container will depict that the job is initialized and triggered.
