Difference between Jobs and Scheduler Jobs


We are trying to build the Team Foundation Server to maintain the versions of the scripts and in that process, we are generating scripts for the Database objects.

When I generate the scripts for "JOBS" and "SCHEDULED JOBS" from TOAD, I see different scripts.

Do we need both of these.  What is the difference between these "JOBS" and "SCHEDULED JOBS". Do I have to generate them separately or generating one should be good.

Please advise asap

Thanks

JOBS are created by DBMS_JOBS package

SCHEDULED JOBS are created by DBMS_SCHEDULER

DBMS_SCHEDULER has a much more sophisticated set of functionality than DBMS_JOBS and can do anything that DBMS_JOBS can do and is intended to replace DBMS_JOBS.

However, there is one important limitation.  DBMS_SCHEDULER autocommits all actions with each call.  DBMS_JOBS does not.

If that distinction isn't important to you than you should use DBMS_SCHEDULER since it is the direction of Oracle's future scheduling plans.
