Subject Re: Timer Service
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2003 19:46:57 GMT
Maybe Quartz is overkill. But if you ship it with hsqldb I don't think there is a big issue
with the creation of database tables. I have read some blogs (
look at august 05) that Quartz isn't that optimized. Maybe we should write something ourselves,
maybe not. I will dig in to this subject during the weekend, do some tests and perheps write
my implementation for comparsion.
