This chapter explains how to set up scheduled tasks through WSO2 ESB.
WSO2 ESB is capable of scheduling and executing tasks periodically. A task can be scheduled to run n number of times in a given t time duration. Also you can schedule a task to run just once after WSO2 ESB starts. If you want to get more control in task scheduling then you can use cron-style. With cron-style, you can schedule a task to run everyday at 6 PM or on 25th at 5 PM every month, likewise.
Scheduled tasks can be used within WSO2 ESB for either the internal management purposes or to cater for business needs.
The scheduled task implementation that comes with WSO2 ESB is built on top of Quartz.
