As I posted earlier:

${avalon-components}/scheduler-api
${avalon-components}/scheduler-impl

Both of these projects (one requires the other) work quite well.  Your
cron jobs are identified by _name_, and you can have quite complex
cron invocation patterns.  You are not limited to the simple delay/
repeat intervals in most Java cron classes (although it is available).
You can schedule based on time of day, day of week, or even business
level concepts like work weeks that account for holidays.

The triggers are flexible and allow you to plug in any implementation
you want without forcing you into the two provided versions.
