I feel that Timer and TimerTask are good enough for my purposes, but too basic for big jobs. I am thinking of learning a scheduler api, but I am not sure which one to select.
I have the following criteria to choose my api -

1 - Must be very easy to use - no complicated setup, no additional skills except java needed (ie NO xml, json, ant, maven etc)
2 - Should be popular among developers, mature, well maintained, have well documented API.
3 - Should have a lot of tutorials and/or books especially for beginners (ie those just beginning job scheduling)

Nice to have - Eclipse integration (if applicable)

Please help me to evaluate all the good options out there like cron4j, quartz, obsidian.

David,

This thread is a virtual clone of the one you started here. Please don't post duplicate threads.

If you feel that this question is significantly different to your other one (personally, I don't), I suggest you add it there.

Locking this thread.

Winston
