Subject Re: I need to run a servlet periodically
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2002 18:30:45 GMT
Hi Filip,

Your servlet can call a class (doesn't have to be a servlet) that sets up a
java.util.timer to run your code as a timerTask.  The servlet can get
parameters from the web.xml file (like how often to execute) and pass that
to your class that controls the timer.

The servlet can pass your class the connection pool info and other needed
session info.

Rick
