Source:EJB 3.1 Specification



18.2.1.3.9 "Every other hour within the day starting at noon on the 2nd Tuesday of every month."

@Schedule(hour="12/2", dayOfMonth="2nd Tue")

Question 1:Why is it mentioned that timer will run every other hour ?
As per my understanding,The above created timer will run every 2 hr within the day starting at noon on the 2nd Tuesday of every month

Hi Mohit,

"every other hour" means "every second".

"every other hour" means "every second".



Then shouldn't the Schedule annotation be as:



Question: Why are we using hour="12/2" ?

Sorry, I meant 2nd, not seconds...

Why are we using hour="12/2" ?


This is because:


For expression x/y, the attribute is constrained to every yth value within the set of allowable values beginning at time x


So, in our example 12/2: every two hours starting at noon

Frits
