WLI - Fire a timer when WebLogic starts

Last Modified: 2013-12-10
Hello, I have a design issue.

I am using WLI 8.1.6 and I want to fire a timer when WebLogic starts. I could do it the traditional way, i.e. write a java.util.Timer, load it at server startup and then have it running ever since. But since WLI provides a timer control to do it I would like to use this. Now my issue is I am not sure what I should use this control with. I am thinking about writing a web service (with a "startup" method) and add a timer control there.

1) Is this a good approach or should I use something else (eg. an EJB)?
2) How can I instruct WebLogic to load up my webservice and call the startup method without user interaction?

Any links/thoughts/personal experience is more than welcome.

Thank you
