Great tool. I was looking for some kind of centralized cron, which means I want to run local jobs on some servers with a centralized management. You can run your jobs at certain times like cron or start them with a mouse click. You can watch the output of your jobs within one application. This is only a simple use case for Oddjob, you can do much more complicated tasks with it.
Document is not perfect.But it is really powerful
Great tool, i used it to create dump files, and it's being used in production as we speak, stable and with no problems after you know what you are doing :).
Oddjob is the only application I've found that tracks which jobs have completed and which jobs have "failed". Oddjob then allows you to reset only the "failed" jobs so that you don't have to re-run the completed jobs. Great tool.
