Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1553) Provide commonj Timer and Work Manager.

David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-1553:
----------------------------------------

I've been looking forward to commonj for a long time :-)

I started glancing at this very briefly.  It's been a couple years since I looked at the commonj
specs ;-).  IIUC we will need some spec jars to be able to compile this.  Should we write
these from the specs?  Are they available so we can put them in our specs project?  So far
we have preferred to have source code for all specs in an apache location.

Does the commonj timer spec include persistent timers in any form, and is it transactional
in any sense?  How useful is it for implementing the transactional persistent ejb timers?


BTW there might be a bug here for non-fixed rate in TimerImpl:

    public synchronized void updateScheduledExecutionTime() {
        if (fixedRate)
            scheduledExecutionTime+=period;
        else
            scheduledExecutionTime+=System.currentTimeMillis()+period;
    }
