Hi All,

I've added quartz scheduling tool my Geronimo 1.2 server. I've created servlet with start-on-startup property set in the web xml so that on server start, the servlet issues a call to a session bean that initializes the scheduler on the EJB tier/level.

The scheduling mechanism starts and works properly, the problem I'm having is tasks in the schedular are unable to access CMP2 entity beans. Any attempt to access the persistent layer ends with a NullPointerException in the geronimo security context manager as shown below.

Is there a way to provide the tasks in the schedule with a proper context so that the processes can run? I checked and the initial call to start the scheduler has access to this layer, but this information is not available to the threads the scheduler spawns.

Whip out those weird instruments of science and probe away! I think it's a tiny ad:
