I have a JSP page that you can pause / unpause a job. I want to list in a column of my table the status of the job either running , or paused.
But No function in the job or trigger class gives me the status. (i.e their is no getStatus() method anywhere except for the scheduler)
I am using api 1.5 of quartz.
I know I can pass a key/value pair in the JobDataMap but I was wondering if their is a simple function that I could call instead? I find it kind of weird that quartz doesn't provide such a function when they have static varablies like STATE_PAUSED STATE_COMPLETE , etc etc.
I am currently looking at TriggerStatus but I don't know how this ties into the job or trigger class how do you set the TriggerStatus for a trigger?
Thanks for any help. If worst comes to worst I can always use the JobDataMap class to keep track of this.
