I need to schedule my JMS topic to run MDBs in certain times of the day. Since the application needs to run in multiple J2EE application servers and the standard JMS javax.jms.MessageProducer does not have a time based delivery method such as WebLogic's weblogic.jms.extensions.WLMessageProducer.setTimeToDeliver(long), it makes the application rely on cron tabs and other system-dependent scheduling tools.

An alternative may be if the MDBs implement J2EE 1.4's javax.ejb.TimedObject, but that's impossible because the app is running J2EE 1.3 and an upgrade is not coming any time soon.

So, I am stuck with this problem. If any of you had to deal with a similar scenario, please let me know.

Thank you in advance.
