I have a question in scheduling jobs in web application. If we have to schedule jobs in web application we can either use java util Timer/TimerTask or Quartz(there are also other scheduling mechanism, but I considered Quartz). I was considering which one to use, when i hit the site http://oreilly.com/pub/a/java/archive/quartz.html?page=1 which says using timer has a bad effect as it creates a thread that is out of containers control in the last line. The other pages discuss Quartz and its capabilities, but I can read that Quartz also uses thread and/or threadpool to schedule tasks. My guess is that these threads are also not under the containers control

Can anybody clarify this to me
Is it safe to use Quartz in my web applications without creating hanging threads or thread locking issues?
Thanks in advance

Moving thread as too difficult for "beginning".

@David, assuming you bounced this because you had the same question as the OP.

I have used Quartz in many web applications and have had no problems with it. If you are looking for something in the standard Java library, the java.util.concurrent.ExecutorService is another alternative. I have used the Spring Framework's TaskExecutor classes and they work well.
