Very good Software.
Very nice app :)
I have been using Job Scheduler for several years now in development, qa, and production environments. I find that it is a dependable and very capable scheduler. Here are some of the features that I find very valuable: 1. The ability to created nested job chains. These enable me create a chain and use it in multiple workflows. 2. The web interface is very thorough; it has views for all of the jobs, job chains, and orders. The web interface enables you to view a job/chain/order state, progress, and configuration. It enables you to see a log for a job, create an adhoc order, and much more. 3. Creating the jobs, chains, and orders are easily done using the included job editor acc. are stored in XML, so it is easy to use a utility like sed to create variants of a job, chain, or an order. 4. It connects to several databases such as Oracle and PostgreSQL. I have connected to both without issue. 5. SOS responds well to bug and feature requests. The forums on SourcForge are active and monitored by SOS. If you are considering a job scheduling application, I highly suggest downloading and using Job Scheduler before trying the other open source and commercial products.
You can always consider using an online ‘cron’ service such as http://onlinejobscheduler.com. This will also allow you to monitor outcomes and receive alerts is something fails.
This is a very sophisticated app with all the features that I could ever want in a Scheduler. If anything, the functionality is so rich, it can be a bit overwhelming, but starting with baby steps I'm in the process of building a very robust and complicated Scheduler implementation. All the building blocks are there. Just need to figure out how to fit the pieces together. The SOS team's responses in the forum are indispensable in this regard. The only criticism I have is the lack of a more user-friendly job editor and more fully-featured web GUI. A combination GUI that allows you to manage the tasks/orders and make changes to the configuration files would really make this a complete app. A great big thank you to the SOS gang for building a such a great piece of software!
