How-To: Instantiating a Scheduler

Instantiating the Default Scheduler


// the 'default' scheduler is defined in "quartz.properties" found
// in the current working directory, in the classpath, or
// resorts to a fall-back default that is in the quartz.jar

SchedulerFactory sf = new StdSchedulerFactory();
Scheduler scheduler = sf.getScheduler();

// Scheduler will not execute jobs until it has been started (though they can be scheduled before start())
scheduler.start();

Instantiating A Specific Scheduler From Specific Properties


StdSchedulerFactory sf = new StdSchedulerFactory();

sf.initialize(schedulerProperties);

Scheduler scheduler = sf.getScheduler();

// Scheduler will not execute jobs until it has been started (though they can be scheduled before start())
scheduler.start();

Instantiating A Specific Scheduler From A Specific Property File


StdSchedulerFactory sf = new StdSchedulerFactory();

sf.initialize(fileName);

Scheduler scheduler = sf.getScheduler();

// Scheduler will not execute jobs until it has been started (though they can be scheduled before start())
scheduler.start();
