Quartz is a full-featured, open source job scheduling service that can be integrated with, or used along side virtually any Java EE or Java SE application - from the smallest stand-alone application to the largest e-commerce system. Quartz can be used to create simple or complex schedules for executing tens, hundreds, or even tens-of-thousands of jobs; jobs whose tasks are defined as standard Java components that may executed virtually anything you may program them to do. The Quartz Scheduler includes many enterprise-class features, such as JTA transactions and clustering.
If your system has recurring maintenance jobs then Quartz may be your ideal solution.
Its major features include:
- Job Scheduling, Jobs are scheduled to run when a given Trigger occurs
- Job Execution
- Job Persistence
- Quartz can participate in JTA transactions
- Supports Fail-over, Load Balancing

Quartz.NET is a full-featured, open source job scheduling system that can be used from smallest apps to large scale enterprise systems. It is a port of very propular open source Java job scheduling framework, Quartz.
Super Scheduler is a full-featured task scheduler for all system and application job scheduling. Super Scheduler is the twin software of Super Watchdog, which is event-action task scheduler for event monitoring.
The Job Scheduler is used for automation - for example, process automation using the free database systems MySQL, PostgreSQL or Firebird or using SQL Server, Oracle or DB2. You can use the Job Scheduler to launch executable files and shell scripts and to run database procedures automatically. Jobs are configurable as Web Services providing interoperability with enterprise applications.
Oddjob is a free open source Java job scheduler. Oddjob provides 'no programming required' scheduling with a business orientated approach that brings control back to the user. Oddjob Explorer allows the user to monitor and control a job any where on the network with an intuitive visual interface.
cron4j is a scheduler for the Java platform which is very similar to the UNIX cron daemon. With cron4j you can launch, from within your Java applications, any task you need at the right time, according to some simple rules.
Taskforest is a simple but expressive open-source job scheduler that allows you to chain jobs/tasks and create time dependencies. It uses text config files to specify task dependencies. It has built-in RESTful web service.
GNUbatch is a job scheduler to run under Unix and GNU/Linux operating systems. It executes jobs at specified dates and times or according to dependencies or interlocks defined by the user. Schedules of jobs may be run on just one processor, or shared across several processors on a network with network-wide dependencies. Access to jobs and other facilities may be restricted to one user or several users in a group as required.
Jcrontab is a scheduler written in Java. The project objective is to provide a fully functional schedules for Java projects. Jcrontab is designed to be extended and integrated with any project. Reads and stores the tasks to execute in a file, a database or an EJB and provides a basic web UI.
FeaturesIn addition to the Quartz scheduler opportunities, this application allows you to build a chain job execution or make dependencies between jobs. Job execution may be vetoed if another job was finished with error, or if another job is still running. Job may have links to another job, that must be started after parent job was finished - this is a chain execution. Dependency and chaining may be used by the job for itself, for example: job execution may be vetoed if it was finished with erro
