I have Java code which I would like to run at certain times during the day. I have Windows 2008 Server but I might also be able to do this on a Linux server.
Most of the code is in a file I have attached. I want to add code to read from a database and write to a database (both databases will be remote and won't be on this server).
I am wondering what the best way to have this code run at a certain times. Should I user window's scheduler or chron or is there some way within the java code to have it run at certain times? Also, I can compile this code into a class file. Will the be sufficient to run it or do I have to put it in a jar file? Note, in order for the file to run it needs other classes . These classes are from an open source Java program called Weka. I was going to install it on the server as well. Will this work?
