Schedule function to run within asp.net web application
Posted on 2010-08-13
I am currently building a new web application that is a front end to a SQL database. The application will allow the user to search and display items in the database. It will also allow an admin to run a function, updateDB(), at the click of a button to update the database. The update function will read an RSS Feed and put items from the feed into the database. This all works fine however there is a request to have the update function automatically run nightly as well. I am familiar with using Windows Scheduled Task to schedule an exe to run but is there a way to schedule a function in a web app to run?
