Subject external scheduler integration
Date Sun, 28 Oct 2012 15:48:02 GMT
For various reasons it's not practical to use quartz etc to schedule my
routes, all the scheduling must be done using the corporate scheduler. I
have searched the forums and it seems all scheduler discussion is based on
the built-in quartz/cron etc.

Anyway my idea to integrate with the external scheduler is simply to use a
<from uri="file: ..." /> that looks for a marker file that will be placed by
the external scheduler, this will tell the route when to run. I figure also,
the route can drop another marker file at the end to report success or
failure; the external scheduler can also be made to look for these files to
get the job status.

Can anyone think of any drawbacks to this approach, or have any better
