Timer and Threads
Posted on 2002-03-28
I create a database to store date for jobs to be executed. I use Timer.schedule(TimerTask task, Date time) to do the scheduling. TimerTask will invoke a thread to run certain code. The program will the check the current date that match with date in database. If exist, it will run the TimerTask.
If i have 1000 of jobs would be run at 10.00 AM and 1000 of jobs would be run at 10.01AM. During the checking process and current time is 10.00 AM. If the checking process for 1000 jobs at 10.00 AM take more than 1 minute. how do i make sure that jobs at 10.01 AM will be executed.
I hope my question is clear to you. Thanks.
